Sample text

Chapters 2-5 o f part I, give a general recapitulation o f the fundamentals o f the theory, w i t h some refinements and answers to objections. Part II gives a general account o f its application to moral argument, showing the force o f arguments deriving from the theory in providing a rational basis for the reconciliation o f interests and considering their weight in questions o f conflicts o f ideals. Finally part III shows the theory applied to a particular moral problem, that o f the oppression o f people on grounds o f racial difference.

H e thinks o f himself in fact as making an exception in his o w n favour, o f favouring his o w n friend at the expense o f morality. H e finds his w a y morally b y means o f an only half-articulate sympathy. B u t he does not find it b y universalizable maxims or indeed b y maxims at all. W h e n y o u leave the ground o f conventional morality^ y o u leave the guidance o f maxims behind. Y e t it is just here that one needs guidance. W h e r e men pass from one set o f maxims to another, or act morally without maxims, there is an area where the logician and the linguistic analyst are necessarily helpless.

Does it follow that one is uttering a tautology i f he says, ' W e ought (morally) to take this impersonal point o f v i e w ' ? N o t at all. For to speak from an impersonal point o f v i e w is not to state, even in part, that one is doing s o ; at most it is to express an impersonal attitude or orientation.
