Ethics – John Anderson

Anderson’s ethical theory was defined as a realist theory and formed part of his systematic Realist philosophy. Anderson’s ethical theory was distinctive in two respects. Firstly, it was an amoral theory in denying the possibility of any absolute or categorical moral judgements. Secondly, he believed that it was possible to articulate a positive theory of ‘goods’ which weren’t obligations. That is, he believed that goods were naturally occurring qualities of human activities.
