    This essay, one of the last that Frankena wrote, provides a scrupulously detailed exploration of the various possible meanings of one of Sidgwick's most famous footnotes in the Methods Long intrigued by what Sidgwick had in mind when he said that he would explain how it came about that for moderns it is not tautologous to claim that one's own good is one's only reasonable ultimate end, Frankena uses this note as a point of departure for a penetrating review of (...)

    Beneficence/Benevolence: WILLIAM K. FRANKENA.William K. Frankena - 1987 - Social Philosophy and Policy 4 (2):1-20.
    I begin with a note about moral goodness as a quality, disposition, or trait of a person or human being. This has at least two different senses, one wider and one narrower. Aristotle remarked that the Greek term we translate as justice sometimes meant simply virtue or goodness as applied to a person and sometimes meant only a certain virtue or kind of goodness. The same thing is true of our word “goodness.” Sometimes being a good person means having all (...)

    Educational Values and Goals: Some Dispositions to Be Fostered.William K. Frankena - 1968 - The Monist 52 (1):1-10.
    There has been much impatience with what R. S. Peters calls “the endless talk about the aims of education,” but this talk continues to go on, and we are invited to add to it on this happy occasion. Indeed, those who deny that education has ends or that educators must have aims seem always to end up talking about much the same thing in a slightly different idiom. At any rate, I am quite ready, at least on this occasion, to (...)

    The Ethics of Love Conceived as an Ethics of Virtue.William K. Frankena - 1973 - Journal of Religious Ethics 1:21 - 36.
    This paper analyzes in some detail what an ethics of love would be like if interpreted rigorously as an ethics of being rather than of doing. It delineates the metaethical structure of such an ethics and suggests the characteristics of love appropriate to the structure. The author then indicates some problems that arise for such an ethical theory.

    Sidgwick and the Dualism of Practical Reason.William K. Frankena - 1974 - The Monist 58 (3):449-467.
    It is well known that Sidgwick finished his examination of “the methods of ethics” in some difficulty. Just what that difficulty was and how he came to be in it, we shall see in due course. This paper is written in the conviction that what he was doing is worth looking at again in the context of contemporary discussion.

    Prichard and the Ethics of Virtue, Notes on a Footnote.William K. Frankena - 1970 - The Monist 54 (1):1-17.
    In this paper I tee off from a footnote in prichard's article, "is moral philosophy based on a mistake?" in it he contrasts living under the aegis of moral obligation and moral goodness with living under the aegis of virtue. Using prichard's terms I try to say what an ethics of virtue as versus one of duty and moral goodness would be like. Then I try to see what prichard's case against the former and for the latter would be like, (...)

    Lecture I: Must Morality Have an Object?William K. Frankena - 1980 - The Monist 63 (1):3-26.
    Some centuries ago most moral philosophy was written by theologians, almost none of it by professional philosophers in our sense, and one of the questions most debated was whether morality could or could not be founded on “an independent bottom”, that is, on a basis other than that provided by revealed religion. This was a many-sided question and would be interesting to discuss in the sense or senses in which it was then taken. In a way, I assumed an affirmative (...)

    The Ethics of Right Reason.William K. Frankena - 1983 - The Monist 66 (1):3-25.
    There is a tradition in western ethics in which use of the concept of right reason is explicit and central. I sketch its history and then formulate six theses affirmed by its spokesmen. In light of the resulting definition I contend that an ethics of right reason is essentially maintained by a variety of moral philosophers in addition to those usually thought to be in the tradition. Its central idea is just that reason in a certain (right) state sets or (...)

    Reply to My Three Critics.William K. Frankena - 1980 - The Monist 63 (1):110-128.
    The Carus Lectures appear above in the form in which they were read, but with the addition of a number of passages, some longer and some shorter, which were omitted in the reading. I think that my presentation of Clause 3 is the only other important change made in the printed version. Except for this change, the lectures as here printed stand essentially as they were written in 1973. The manuscript has been out of my hands since 1974 and would (...)

    The Philosopher's Attack on Morality: William K. Frankena.William K. Frankena - 1974 - Philosophy 49 (190):345-356.
    Morality has been getting a great deal of looking at in recent years by philosophers, theologians, psychologists, social scientists, journalists, and novelists, as well as by people, especially students, women, and young people, on the street. Much of this investigation has been aimed at redesigning morality or developing a ‘new morality’, and some of it at doing away with morality entirely and replacing it with something else, with the something elses ranging all the way from love, through religion, sincerity, authenticity, (...)

    Lecture II: Is Morality a System of Ordinary Oughts?William K. Frankena - 1980 - The Monist 63 (1):27-47.
    Today, as so often in the past, there is much ado about morality. Theologians, psychologists, social scientists, journalists, novelists, students, drop-outs, women's libbers, and people on the street are all asking pointed questions about it. Some are for de-moralizing society and the individual, asking either whether an individual should try to be moral or to assume a morality if he has it not, and if so why; or even whether our society should have a morality at all or has any (...)

    Macintyre on Defining Morality.William K. Frankena - 1958 - Philosophy 33 (125):158 - 162.
    IN “What Morality is Not”, Philosophy , XXXII , Mr. Alasdair Maclntyre argues against the view, now common, “that universal–izability is of the essence of moral valuation”. On page 331 he uses an argument which is an adaptation and extension of Moore's naturalistic fallacy argument, and which is generalizable. As Moore's argument, if cogent, holds against all definitions of “good”, “right”, etc., so Maclntyre's argument, if good, holds against all definitions of “moral” and “morality”. For this reason I shall examine (...)

    Conversations with Carney and Hauerwas.William K. Frankena - 1975 - Journal of Religious Ethics 3 (1):45-62.
    In response to Hauerwas, Frankena explores the nature of a moral virtue and the relation between virtue and obligation. He argues that those notions are not related in all the ways Hauerwas suggests and that the ties that do link them can be understood on the basis of an ethical analysis that gives primacy to moral obligation. In response to both Hauerwas and Carney, he examines the relation between morality and religion and argues that his analysis of the concept of (...)
