Moral Value and Human Diversity

Robert Audi


This short book is designed for those learning about the search for ethical rules that can apply despite cultural differences. The author looks at several such attempts – Aristotle, Kant, Mill – and the movement known as “common-sense” ethics associated with W.D. Ross. He shows how each attempt grew out of its own time and place, yet has some universal qualities that can be used for an ethical framework.

Keywords: ethical rules, cultural differences, Aristotle, Kant, Mill, common-sense ethics, W.D. Ross
