2014 (English)In: Philosophical Papers, ISSN 0556-8641, Vol. 43, no 3, 429-445 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper revisits Richard Price’s Review of the Principal Questions in Morals (1757/1787). Price was a defender of rationalism about ethics and he anticipated many views and arguments that became influential as the metaethical and ethical debates evolved over the later centuries. The paper explores and assesses Price’s arguments in favour of rationalism and against sentimentalism, with a view to how they bear on the modern metaethical debate.
