Practical Ethics in 18th-Century Britain

Practical Ethics in Eighteenth Century Britain reconstructs the history of practical ethics in Britain, focusing on the period from the 1670s, when Protestant natural law practical ethics gained an institutional foothold in England, to early British responses to the French Revolution (c. 1791), when natural rights became tainted for Britons by the events in France. The book’s principal goal is to identify the conventional positions concerning both the content and point of philosophical morality. This will enable both a novel history and the correction of errors in the scholarly literature about, for instance, the originality, intended audience, and aims of philosophical argument.
