Actual Ethics offers a moral defense of the 'classical liberal' political tradition and applies it to several of today's vexing moral and political issues. James Otteson argues that a Kantian conception of personhood and an Aristotelian conception of judgment are compatible and even complementary. He shows why they are morally attractive, and perhaps most controversially, when combined, they imply a limited, classical liberal political state. Otteson then addresses several contemporary problems - wealth and poverty, public education, animal welfare, and affirmative action - and shows how each can be plausibly addressed within the Kantian, Aristotelian and classical liberal framework. Written in clear, engaging, and jargon-free prose, Actual Ethics will give students and general audiences an overview of a powerful and rich moral and political tradition that they might not otherwise consider.

James R. Otteson specializes in political philosophy, the history of economic thought, and political economy. He is the author of Adam Smith's Marketplace of Life (Cambridge University Press, 2002) and Actual Ethics (Cambridge University Press, 2006), the latter of which won the 2007 Templeton Enterprise Award. He is also the editor of The Levellers: Overton, Walwyn, and Lilburne, five volumes (2003). His most recent book is Adam Smith (2013). Otteson is Executive Director and Teaching Professor in the School of Business at Wake Forest University, Research Professor in the Department of Philosophy and in the Center for the Philosophy of Freedom at the University of Arizona, and Senior Scholar at the Fund for American Studies in Washington, DC.
