Quote For The Month. May 2017

I have urged, then, than moral theory is, in important respects, independent from certain philosophical subjects sometimes regarded as methodologically prior to it. But I do not care for independence too strictly understood; an idea I like better is that each part of philosophy should have its own subject matter and problems and yet, at the same time, stand directly or indirectly in relations of mutual dependence with the others. The fault of methodological hierearchies is not unlike the fault of political and social ones: they lead to a distortion of vision with a consequent misdirection of effort.
J. Rawls, The Independence of Moral Theory, 1975.
