Neo-liberalism and its threat to moral agency

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

First, neo-liberalism requires a non-cognitivist view of morality, and all such views in effect (if not by intention) deny morality (as I have argued elsewhere). Second, it insists that the simulacrum of morality that remains pertains only to individuals’ individual lives – that’s to say, our “private” lives, where of course non-cognitivist views of morality might have such plausibility as they do. So, third, neo-liberalism is necessarily anti-moral.
