Is objectivity an appropriate way to think about morality? What role could impartiality or freedom from bias play in moral reasoning? ‘Can there be objectivity in ethics?’ discusses notions closely associated with morality — such as universalisability, justice, and feelings of obligation and guilt — by considering religious thought and the work of Baron de Montesquieu, Samuel Clarke, Immanuel Kant, and John Rawls. Each of these notions can be fleshed out, if only with varying degrees of success, in objective terms. Morality itself, assuming there is some core notion of morality that goes beyond these, seems to resist such treatment.
