The Appeal to Full Relativity

The Appeal to Full Relativity

(p.137) 7 The Appeal to Full Relativity
Reasons and Persons

Derek Parfit (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Discusses Sidgwick's challenge to S; temporal and interpersonal neutrality; analogies between ‘I’ and ‘now’, or oneself and the present. It presents arguments that appeal to these analogies; how S is incompletely relative, making it vulnerable to attack from two directions. S can be challenged both by theories like CP, which are relative both to persons and to times, and by those moral theories that are both temporally and interpersonally neutral.

Keywords:   neutral, person, rationality, reasons, relative, Sidgwick, time
