First published in 1998, this influential volume undertakes a task of exposition and interpretation in explaining the views of this important yet elusive ethical philosopher and why he thought modern moral and political philosophy so muddled. Fuller places MacIntyre in his philosophical context, draws out his attitudes towards ethical issues and attempts to uncover and explain his influences. In four parts, Fuller explores the board outline of MacIntyre’s position, casuistry and the nature of tethics, MacIntyre’s arguments on truth and reason and lastly his notions of narrative unity, ethical justification, tradition along with views on fact, theory and value.

Table of Contents

1. Making Sense of MacIntyre. 2. Casuistry and the Nature of Ethics. 3. Incommensurability. 4. Some Other Issues.
