Précis of The Evolution of Morality [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 77 (1):213-218 (2008)
|Abstract||The Evolution of Morality attempts to accomplish two tasks. The first is to clarify and provisionally advocate the thesis that human morality is a distinct adaptation wrought by biological natural selection. The second is to inquire whether this empirical thesis would, if true, have any metaethical implications.|
