Wie lässt sich Moral begründen? (Beck Paperback) (German by Norbert Hoerster PDF

By Norbert Hoerster

Diese grundlegende philosophische Frage ist durchaus auch von praktischer Bedeutung. Denn es gibt immer wieder moralische Fragen, über die es sogar in ein und derselben Gesellschaft zu gravierenden Meinungsverschiedenheiten kommt. Das zeigt, dass die Frage nach der richtigen Methode der Moralbegründung nicht nur in theoretischer, sondern auch in praktischer Hinsicht einer Antwort bedarf. Hoerster sichtet in diesem Buch kritisch verschiedene Möglichkeiten der Moralbegründung. Letztlich erteilt er in seiner leicht verständlichen Abhandlung allen prominenten Versuchen einer objektiven Moralbegründung – wie Kants kategorischem Imperativ und Habermas’ Diskurstheorie – eine Absage. Eine Moralnorm, so das Fazit des Buches, ist nur insoweit intersubjektiv begründet, als ihre soziale Geltung im Interesse der betroffenen Individuen liegt.
