Moral Theory: Priority of the Right
Morality can be painfully demanding, so much so that we sometimes question the wisdom of complying with it. Yet, arguments that we have good reason to be moral are as old as Plato's Republic. Indeed, according to H. A. Prichard, making this argument work is the central preoccupation of moral philosophy. But Prichard also believes that, to the extent this is true, the whole subject of moral philosophy rests on a mistake.
