Moral Animals: Ideals and Constraints in Moral Theory

Synopsis

Moral Animals offers a brand new approach to moral theory. Drawing on anthropology, sociology, and evolutionary theory, as well as philosophy of language and philosophy of science, Catherine Wilson shows how to understand and reconcile our moral aspirations for a just world with the constraints human nature places on us. This ambitious book will spark fresh debates within philosophy and across the social sciences.
