Abstract

This question has developed, post Hobbes, in two directions. In one understanding, morality is reasonable, either because it coincides with self-interest or because it contributes to self-interest. An alternative approach rejects the primacy of reason and looks instead to human intuition, human affections or the will for an account of being moral.
