In this title, some of the world's leading scholars in metaethics, epistemology and moral psychology explore the latest insights into and challenges to Robert Audi's intuitionism. Since his 2004 publication of the book "The Good in the Right", Robert Audi has been at the forefront of the current resurgence of interest in intuitionism - the idea that human beings have an intuitive sense of right and wrong - in ethics. "The New Intuitionism" brings together some of the world's most important contemporary writers from such diverse fields as metaethics, epistemology and moral psychology to explore the latest implications of and challenges to Audi's work. The book also includes an opening chapter that surveys the development of contemporary intuitionism and a conclusion that lays the ground for future developments and debates both written by Audi himself, making this an essential survey of this important school of ethical thought for anyone working in the field.
Robert Audi is Professor of Philosophy and David E. Gallo Professor of Business Ethics at the University of Notre Dame, USA. His many publications include The Good in the Right: A Theory of Intuition and Intrinsic Value (Princeton, 2004).
