Morally-Demanding Infinite Responsibility: The Supererogatory Attitude of Levinasian Normativity by Julio Andrade
English | EPUB | 2021 | 207 Pages | ISBN : 3030616290 | 0.3 MB
This book presents a conceptual mapping of supererogation in the analytic moral philosophical tradition. It first asks whether supererogation can be conceptualised in the absence of obligation or duty and then makes the case that it can be. It does so by enlisting the resources of the continental tradition, specifically using the work of Emmanuel Levinas and his notion of infinite responsibility. In so doing the book contributes to the ongoing efforts to create a common ethical terminology between the analytic and continental traditions within moral philosophy.
