The Moral Mind

Morality and moral thinking are elusive; many attempts to explain them fail. Henry Haslam examines the part played by reason and rationality and finds that they, too, fail as a foundation for moral thinking. He goes on to compare and contrast the moral thinking involved in personal morality, social morality and legislation. He then briefly discusses two examples of moral thinking. First, he notes that the moral values observed by the media differ in important respects from those of society in general, and secondly he considers how traditional moral thinking can be applied to an important new moral problem: the way we look after the Earth.
Henry Haslam is the author of The Moral Mind. He spent his working life as a geologist, in the British Geological Survey, and he tries to bring a scientist’s approach to the study of moral thinking.
