Morality and Phenomenology

  • H. Peter Steeves
Part of the Phaenomenologica book series (PHAE, volume 143)

That is, the project is often one of describing the structures of the ethical experience and of moral action. This comes as no great surprise as it is the aim of phenomenology to investigate such structures of consciousness and thereby achieve understanding.
