Philosophy 33 (124):1 - 19 (1958)
AbstractThe author presents and defends three theses: (1) "the first is that it is not profitable for us at present to do moral philosophy; that should be laid aside at any rate until we have an adequate philosophy of psychology." (2) "the second is that the concepts of obligation, And duty... And of what is morally right and wrong, And of the moral sense of 'ought', Ought to be jettisoned if this is psychologically possible...." (3) "the third thesis is that the differences between the well-Known english writers on moral philosophy from sidgwick to the present day are of little importance." (staff)
