The common good and universal values

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In preparing a special issue of Philosophy and Social Criticism, David Rasmussen (1990) noted that "the two principal orientations in contemporary ethics" (pp. 1-2) these days are communitarianism and universalism. Observing that ethics is once again at the center of philosophical discussion and dominates the public sphere, he considers the debate between community and the universal supremely urgent at present.1
