About This Book

This edited volume is devoted to thehistory of moral concepts, including shame, contempt, happiness, conscience, cleanliness and 'the brick'.

The chapters in this book are written from the diverse perspectives of the philosopher, theologian, linguist and historian of ideas. However, they are united in the conviction that these concepts are illuminated by being treated historically; or even, more strongly, that we cannot fully understand what they are now without knowing the history of how they have come to be. Viewed in this way, the history of moral concepts is a crucial preliminary to moral self-understanding, as well as an interesting enquiry in its own right.

The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the History of European Ideas.
