The Reasonable and the Moral

Social Theory and Practice 28 (2):277-301 (2002)
Abstract
I construct a new theory of unreasonable action, one that is analogous to commonsensical judgments of unreasonable emotion, and I then argue that a theory of wrongness qua unreasonable action does a better job of accounting for several important aspects of wrongness than Scanlon's theory of wrongness qua reasonable rejection among hypothetical social contractors
