Book Event →

Moral and political philosopher Onora O’Neill looks at the role of principles in moral reasoning and the relationship between principles and judgement.

From Principles to Practice: Normativity and Judgement in Ethics and Politics is a collection of O’Neill’s essays. She argues that principles are not enough for ethical thought or action. We also need to understand how practical judgement identifies ways of enacting them and of changing the way things are.
