The Quest for Moral Progress. Lessons from Diamond and Rorty

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Moral Progress; Moral Understanding; Moral Transformation; Wittgensteinian Moral Philosophy; Pragmatist Ethics.

The article surveys and compares aspects of the moral work of Cora Diamond and Richard Rorty in order to build a feasible picture of moral progress hinged on the notions and activities of moral understanding and moral transformation. In particular, the Diamondian realistic spirit is coupled with Rortian ironic redescriptions, showing how moral progress can be understood, after these authors, as a matter of deepening the notions we live by and transforming ourselves by means of new ones.
