That's actually quite an interesting parallel. Personally I have, for a very long time, considered rationality and morality inextricably linked, the latter being informed and defined by the former exclusively in my personal philosophy (for more on how rationality leads to morality, I recommend checking out Robert Johnson's book "Rational Morality".

This article explores Humean and neo-Humean theories of practical reason and their relation to morality. A neo-Humean theory holds that rationality is basically a matter of efficiency in serving one's intrinsic ends or goals, where a person's intrinsic goals are taken as given—or as they would be if the person had more accurate by: 2.

This chapter considers the possibility of analysing morality as a solution to the problem of market failure. Here, morality is viewed as the outcome of a rational bargain nested in a prisoners' dilemma.

In his book Morals by Agreement, David Gauthier argues that morality can be the outcome of a rational bargain. The chapter takes up the possibility of deriving morality from. The Objectivity and Rationality of Morality According to Kant morality is rational and objective.

It is based on rational human reasoning. In the Shadow of Organization The book focuses on the impact of individuals within organizations and how organizational efficiency or rationality is getting deep into our individuality.

Hart famously critiques Fuller’s notion of the ‘internal morality of law’ by comparing it with a ‘morality of poisoning’.2 These two ideas, Hart contends, are not concerned with morality so much as efficiency in the pursuit of some by: 5.

For another, I think, this is a good test case for thinking about the relationship of morality and rationality.

Ethics and reason, these are two things morality and reason, that are not opposed to each other, that we need to work in concert in some way, but they’re different things.

This collection focuses on questions that arise when morality is considered from the perspective of recent work on rational choice and evolution. Linking questions like Is it rational to be moral. to the evolution of cooperation in The Prisoners Dilemma, the book brings together new work using models from game theory, evolutionary biology, and cognitive science, as well as from.

Much discussion of instrumental rationality has taken place in the context of a debate about whether instrumental rationality is the only kind of practical rationality or, alternatively, there are other requirements of practical rationality as well, such as requirements of prudence and morality.

For our purposes, we may even include illegal and undercover organizations like the Mafia, the Communist party, the FBI, and the CIA. The general character istics of all these organizations are that they are.

One long-standing issue in philosophy is whether or not there is a connection between rationality and morality – and if there is, what shape or form it might plausibly take.

However, this key issue has not always received explicit attention in recent years. In the meantime, positions on both rationality and morality have diversified considerably.

The. Rationality has failed to ground morality on firm foundations, leaving us stranded in a confusing moral landscape. It seems, therefore, that, to some extent, rationality is an impediment to morality.

There was a time, before the Age of Reason, when people had. The Rationality and Morality of Human Reproduction. Lantz Miller - - Dissertation, City University of New York Graduate Center details Human reproduction has long been assumed to be an act of the blind force of nature, to which humans were subject, like the weather.

So now you can see how morality can come from rationality. Kantians say that you have a moral duty to do only what is rational, and you have duties to do those things because they are rational.

As long as you intend to do your duty—that is, you have a good will—you are acting permissibly. The German philosopher Immanuel Kant suggested that duties came from rationality. He thought we should do only what is rational because rationality is special; only humans possess it.

So the way to have a good life is to embrace your humanity. The moral theory that bases morality on duties that come from rationality is called Kantianism, after. Abstract. The rigorous employment of his empirical method led Bergson to the discovery that there are two distinct and irreducible moralities in the life of man — the closed or static, and the open or dynamic These two are not merely different aspects of a single morality since there is a difference of kind between them and not merely one of by: Criminal investigation is an applied science that involves the study of facts that are then used to inform criminal trials.

Rationality has been recognized as perhaps the major theme in Max Weber's oeuvre. The commentators who have addressed this theme have generally constricted its polymorphous character. This article inventories Weber's usage of "rationality" and "rationaliza- tion" in Economy and Society and the Collected Essays in the So- ciology of Religion.

Bernard Williams's remarkable essay on morality confronts the problems of writing moral philosophy, and offers a stimulating alternative to more systematic accounts that seem nevertheless to have left all the important issues somewhere off the page.

Williams explains, analyzes and distinguishes a number of key positions, from the purely amoral to notions of 5/5(1). Moral rationalism, also called ethical rationalism, is a view in meta-ethics (specifically the epistemology of ethics) according to which moral principles are knowable a priori, by reason alone.

Some prominent figures in the history of philosophy who have defended moral rationalism are Plato and Immanuel s the most prominent figure in the history of philosophy. Theories of practical rationality say when it is rational to form and fulfill intentions to do actions.

David Gauthier says the correct theory would be the one our obeying would best advance the aim of rationality, something Humeans take to be the satisfaction of one’s desires.I use this test to evaluate the received theory and Gauthier’s and theories.
