9780802849977: God's Call: Moral Realism, God's Commands, and Human Autonomy

There has been a debate between modern ethicists who see moral judgments as objectively corresponding to a moral reality independent of human opinion and those who insist that moral judgments are essentially expressions of our will. In this excellent philosophical work John Hare outlines a theory that combines the merits of both views, arguing that what makes something right is that God calls us to it. In the first chapter Hare gives a selective history of the sustained debate within Anglo-American philosophy over the last century between moral realists and moral expressivists. Best understood as a disagreement about how objectivity and subjectivity are related in value judgment, this debate is of particular interest to Christians, who necessarily feel pulled in both directions. Christians want to say that value is created by God and exists whether we recognize it or not, but they also want to say that when we value something, our hearts' fundamental commitments are also involved. Hare suggests "prescriptive realism" as a way to bring both perspectives together. The second chapter examines the divine command theory of John Duns Scotus, looking particularly at the relationship that Scotus established between God's commands, human nature, and human will. Hare shows that a Calvinist version of the divine command theory of obligation can be defended via Scotus against natural law theory as well as against contemporary challenges. A significant theme treated here is the view that the Fall disordered our natural inclinations, rendering them useless as an authoritative source of guidance for right living. In the last chapter Hare moves to the key philosophical juncture between the medieval period and our own time -- the moral theory of Immanuel Kant in the late eighteenth century. Modern moral philosophy has largely taken Kant's work as a refutation of divine command theory and a refocusing of the discussion on human aut

About the Author:

John E. Hare is Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale University. His books include "The Moral Gap" (1996), "God's Call" (2001), and "Why Bother Being Good? "(2002). He has also written on Greek philosophy, international relations, Kant, evolutionary ethics, and biomedical ethics.

From Booklist:

Based on lectures, Hare's brief book provides an informative history of one major controversy in twentieth-century ethics, that between moral realists and moral expressivists. Hare understands the controversy as a disagreement about "how objectivity and subjectivity are related in moral judgment." This reading of the controversy leads to illuminating discussion of, among others, Iris Murdoch, whose influence reached a significant audience through her fiction as well as her philosophical writing. Hare then takes the late-medieval theorist John Duns Scotus as an ally in defending divine command theory against theories based in natural law. Finally, he engages Kant, who is widely believed to have refuted divine command theory, in a conversation that allows Hare to defend such a theory and to affirm human autonomy. The discussion may be a bit dense for general readers, but the controversy at its heart is a live one in ethics and of particular concern to theological descendants of Calvin and to those concerned with natural law in Catholic moral theology.

Modern moral philosophy has largely taken Kant s work as a refutation of divine command theory and a refocusing of the discussion on human autonomy. Hare shows that Kant was in fact not arguing against the kind of divine command theory that Hare supports. He discusses what Kant meant by saying that we should recognize our duties as God s commands, and he defends a notion of human autonomy as appropriation. Featuring original moral theory and fresh interpretations of the thought of Duns Scotus and Kant, God s Call is valuable both for its overview of the history of moral debate and for its construction of a sound Christian ethic for today.
