Is morality a holdover from a bygone world and, as such, nothing more than a means of giving authority to one's opinion? The questions "Why be moral at all?" and "Is there any moral knowledge?" help us to track down the reality of morality. Roth approaches these questions in two lines of thought: On the one hand, he examines whether moral behavior is actually based exclusively on convention, coercion or the subjective preference of moral people, or whether there are rational reasons for behaving morally. On the other hand, he examines whether morality is exclusively a matter of subjective assessments or whether there are such things as moral facts.

Prof. Dr. Michael Roth teaches systematic theology and social ethics at the University of Mainz.
