Moral Inquiry Within the Bounds of Politics
In Fox And Westbrook (ed.), Facing Up to the Facts: Moral Inquiry in American Scholarship. Cambridge University Press (1997)
This essay argues against conventional approaches to applied ethics on the grounds that they embrace a mistaken view of the relationship between theory and practice; it then goes on to develop a pragmatic alternative with reference to a series of arguments about moral responsibility for external harm.
