The Phenomenology of Moral Motivation

The Phenomenology of Moral Motivation

(p.152) 6 The Phenomenology of Moral Motivation
Can Animals Be Moral?

Mark Rowlands

Oxford University Press

The SCNM schema is introduced in this chapter, as a consequence of the discussion of the previous chapter. Effective critical Scrutiny of motivations is supposed to yield Control over those motivations. This control is required for those motivations to have Normative status. And this normative status is required for motivations to be Moral ones. This chapter and the next attack the connection between scrutiny and control. Effective critical scrutiny makes two differences to moral motivation. First, it alters the phenomenology of moral motivation. Second, it alters the cognitive structure of motivation. It is argued that the phenomenological differences that effective critical scrutiny brings are not the sorts of things that could yield control over motivations.
