Moral Theory sets out the basic system used to solve moral problems, the system that consequentialists deride as 'traditional morality'. The central concepts, principles and distinctions of traditional morality are explained and defended: rights; justice; the good; virtue; the intention/foresight distinction; the acts/omissions distinction; and, centrally, the fundamental value of human life.

David S. Oderberg is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Reading, UK. He is the author of The Metaphysics of Identity over Time, Applied Ethics: A Non-Consequentialist Approach, Moral Theory: A Non-Consequentialist Approach, and numerous articles in metaphysics, philosophical logic, and related subjects.
