Title From human nature to moral Philosophy
Date 2002
Description In this essay I've illustrated the effects of exposing the question of the self to empirical scrutiny, showing that it leads to a partial dissolution of the manifest image. And that this, in turn, leads to seeking articulation of the relationship between moral and political Philosophy;, as to whether the latter might not be the more fundamental relations in which individuals stand to each other. The suggestion that the matter might not turn out as usually presumed in some heavily individualistic traditions of moral and political Philosophy; flies in the face of instincts deeply grounded in armchair methodologies because from the armchair all questions of what I should do have the ring of personal rather than political questions. It is the dogma of the armchair. Indeed, it is in the very nature of the armchair - the armchair's inferior grain. Philosophy; needs to rise above it, and in today's increasingly interdisciplinary climate is more than ever before poised for doing so.
