    1 thought on “Ethics after Babel

    1. Jeffrey Stout, with characteristic lucidity and complexity, discusses traditional ethical theories in light of the later Wittgenstein s legacy using Rorty, Davidson, and Quine This was very helpful not only is his lexicon humorous, concise, and highly relevant he advises, with quick philosophical quips, which understandings of issues such as conceptual schemes to commit oneself to , but his discussion of theories is both generous and critical I d recommend it to any student of ethics.

    2. This is a clever book, but ultimately unsuccessful I think that Stout plays fast and loose with the definition of what constitutes a tradition, and ultimately just gives a pragmatist take on John Rawls that is sympathetic to forms of religious reasoning Nonetheless, Stout s brilliance cannot be denied.
