Introduction to Moral Theories

Having discussed morality last week, and personhood the week before we have a fair grounding in what the basis of morality is and who/what it applies to.

This episode hopes to lay the foundations of moral theories, how they work, what they mean and will enable us to explore the ethical systems in future chapters.

What Moral Theories will we Discuss?

  • Consequentialist
  • Deontological
  • Virtue Ethics
  • Moral Subjectivism

We also discuss what colour dress Kriss will be wearing at my wedding.
