The Advantages of Moral Diversity

Social Philosophy and Policy 9 (02):38- (1992)

Moral deliberation requires the collaboration of distinctive perspectives: consequentialist, deontological, perfectionist considerations each contribute significant dimensions in determining what is good and what is right; virtue theory highlights the development of reliable ethical character.
