Comment: Condition: Fine Condition. Jacket Condition: Fine . Edition: First Edition. Binding: Hardcover. Full Title: Mencius, Hume and the Foundations of Ethics. (Ashgate World Philosophies). Author: Xiusheng Liu. Publisher: Ashgate Publishing Limited, 2003. Size: 1.3 x 15.9 x 23.5 cm. 386 pages. Institutional stamp on front endpaper. What is the most distinctive feature of human nature? Does human nature play any significant role in explaining ethical objectivity? How do we arrive at moral judgements? What is the relationship between moral judgements and moral motivation? In answering these questions, this work defends a naturalist, realist and internalist theory of the foundations of ethics. This theory, grounded on a particular concept of humanity, combines insights from Mencius and David Hume. The views of each show how important features left underdeveloped by the other can be supplemented and refined. The unified theory that results is a robust contender among current ethical theories. This volume, relating Chinese and Western philosophical traditions, presents an account of the unity of the virtues in Mencius, breaks ground in Hume studies through its discussion of the concept of sympathy in Hume's theory, and brings combined insights to bear on contemporary analytical theories of ethics.
