It is difficult, therefore, to see why historians of philosophy should impose on themselves a restriction that other historians do not accept. Readers will also benefit from the full list of Schneewind's publications, which shows how much has been omitted from this volume. The writer doesn't just describe the situation, but revisits the scene with more detail and emotion to examine what went well, or reveal a need for additional learning — and may relate what transpired to the rest of the author's life. Another presents an overview of Kant's ethics.

Kohlberg was especially inspired by Jean Piaget, a Swiss psychologist who created the theory of cognitive development. This is puzzling, for two reasons: 1 Schneewind seems to agree after all that evaluation of philosophers' achievements, and not simply the reconstruction of their intentions, is a legitimate task for a historian. But his later sympathetic treatment of Kant expounds Kant from a nihilist point of view. When creating a narrative, authors must determine their purpose, consider their audience, establish their point of view, use dialogue, and organize the narrative.

Political Discourses. This is clearly a positive moral action, as preserving human life, especially innocent human life is essentially universally morally desirable. However, in the real word, moral decisions are often much more difficult and confusing than they appear during reasoned ethical analysis. It has all the qualities of a technical document with the only difference is that it is often written in descriptive moodwhile a technical document is mostly in imperative mood. But even if one could answer these questions, I doubt whether the answers should matter to historians of ethics.
