Taking morality seriously

    Abstract

    The broad sense of morality with which the narrow sense contrasts is 'a general, all-inclusive theory of conduct: the morality to which someone subscribed would be whatever body of principles he allowed ultimately to guide or determine his choices of action' (ibid.: 106). So, in the narrow sense, 'moral considerations would be considerations from some limited range, and would not necessarily include everything that a man allowed to detennine what he did' (ibid.).
