About this book

The author presents a new philosophical theory according to which we need intuitions and emotions in order to have objective moral knowledge, which is called affectual intuitionism.  Affectual Intuitionism combines ethical intuitionism with a cognitive theory of emotions.

Reviews

'In Moral Emotions and Intuitions Sabine Roeser very ably sketches a new theory of moral judgments. She blends traditional intuitionism's commitment to rationality and ethical realism with the best recent work in the philosophy and psychology of emotions to produce an excitingly attractive view that she calls Affectual Intuitionism. Along the way, she provides a handy guide to the intuitionist literature.' - Robert C. Roberts, Baylor University, USA

'Sabine Roeser's Moral Emotions and Intuitions proposes a novel theory of the nature and interconnections of intuition, moral judgment, emotion, and moral knowledge. She has much to say about each of these, often fruitfully drawing on the insights of Thomas Reid, and she defends provocative views about both emotions and moral knowledge. This book will engage both ethical theorists and moral psychologists.' - Robert Audi, John A. O'Brien Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame, USA
