Value and Context: the Nature of Moral and Political Knowledge By Alan Thomas
2006 | 368 Pages | ISBN: 0198250177 | PDF | 4 MB


In Value and Context Alan Thomas articulates and defends the view that human beings do possess moral and political knowledge but it is historically and culturally contextual knowledge in ways that, say, mathematical or chemical knowledge is not. In his exposition of “cognitive contextualism” in ethics and politics he makes wide-ranging use of contemporary work in epistemology, moral philosophy, and political theory.
