The "good" and the "right" revisited

Philosophical Perspectives 23 (1):499-519 (2009)
Moral philosophy has long been preoccupied by a supposed dichotomy between the “good” and the “right”. This dichotomy has been taken to define certain allegedly central issues for ethics. How are the good and the right related to each other? For example, is one of the two “prior” to the other? If so, is the good prior to the right, or is the right prior to the good?
