A Critique of Graber's Divine Command Theory of Ethics

Journal of Religious Ethics 3 (1):157 - 163 (1975)
Abstract
The author criticizes a divine command theory of moral obligation offered by Glenn C. Graber. Reeder opposes Graber's claim that divine righteousness can be understood independent of standards of moral obligation and questions the plausibility of basing moral obligation on unchecked command, even the commands of God. Speaking historically, he discusses the relation of this theory to the moral theory of Ockham.
