How far can our moral beliefs and practices survive the reflective understanding we have of them? This is the question posed by Morality, Reflection, and Ideology, thus initiating a discussion in which the concept of the moral or ethical and those of reflection and ideology appear togetherfor the illumination of each. The intricate relations between these concepts are explored by eminent contributors from the UK and the US, including Bernard Williams. They demonstrate how this question arises in a variety of different areas of philosophy, from the work of a particular historicalfigure to the metaphysics of morals, and from moral psychology to ethical and political theory.
Edward Harcourt is a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Kent.
