A timely and penetrating investigation, this book seeks to transform moral philosophy. In the face of continuing disagreement about which general moral principles are correct, there has been a resurgence of interest in the idea that correct moral judgements can be only about particular cases. This view—moral particularism—forecasts a revolution in ordinary moral practice and opposes the most contemporary normative moral theory that attempts to show that either one general principle, or a set of general principles, is superior to all its rivals.
