Could Horace Talk with the Hebrews? Translatability and Moral Disagreement in MacIntyre and Stout

Journal of Religious Ethics 19 (1):1 - 20 (1991)
Working from a standpoint which understands Christian ethics as a tradition-bound discourse, this essay provides a critical analysis and assessment of Alasdair Maclntyre and Jeffrey Stout on the problem of translatability between and among ethical traditions. Taking issue with both Maclntyre on the level of agreement needed for translatability and Stout on the idea of a thin conception of the good, the essay argues for a constructive position on the relation of Christian ethics to liberal society which lies between the positions of Maclntyre and Stout.
