(p.158) 7 Glory as an Ethical Idea
Knowing What To Do

Timothy Chappell

Oxford University Press

Chapter 7 is a case study of how far actual ethical reflection diverges from moral theory; the case which it looks at in detail is the notion of glory, a notion which everybody recognizes as of key practical and motivational importance, but no one makes room for in moral theory. This divergence tells against moral theory, and in favour of less constricted and more flexible modes of ethical reflection.
