This title introduces and explores the ways in which contemporary ethics has dealt with the relationship between morality and motivation. Why do we sometimes do things we know to be immoral? And does motive matter in judging an action right or wrong? Many would say that someone's motives for acting are a key factor in deciding whether that person's action is right or wrong. In this book, Leonard Kahn introduces and explores the various ways in which contemporary moral philosophers have grappled with the connection between morality and motivation. "Moral Motivation" critically examines the central concepts and competing schools of thought that have shaped this debate, from internalism and externalism to moral realism. Along the way the book covers such topics as amoral action and weakness of will. The final chapter also introduces the latest thinking and potential future directions in the study of this central topic, including the contributions to our understanding of motivation being made by the fields of cognitive science and moral psychology. "Moral Motivation" also includes chapter summaries and guides to further reading throughout to help readers explore and master this important school of contemporary ethical thought.
