Sidgwick exclusive 3 uncomplicated equipment: utilitarianism, egoism, and dogmatic intuitionism.

Sidgwick believed he may possibly mostly unravel the clash among utilitarianism and dogmatic intuitionism, yet couldn't unravel the clash among utilitarianism and egoism. Phillips means that how one can procedure Sidgwick's rules is first of all his perspectives on those conflicts, and with the metaethical and epistemological principles on which they count. Phillips translates and principally defends Sidgwick's non-naturalist metaethics and reasonable intuitionist ethical epistemology. yet he argues for a verdict at the conflicts diversified from Sidgwick's personal.
