Should we always act morally?
Do moral considerations always override non-moral ones, for instance economically rational considerations? Should we always act in accordance to our moral judgments? Or are there cases in which non-moral motives become or are allowed to become action-guiding? These are the key questions of the debate on moral overridingness, which was introduced in the modern metaethical discourse mainly by Bernard Williams, Susan Wolf and Michael Slote in the early 1980s. This volume takes up the issue and presents current contributions of prominent philosophers. Thereby, it adds new insights to a metaethical topic that also is relevant for everyday practice.
