Review: Finite and Infinite Goods: A Framework for Ethics

Robert Adams’ Finite and Infinite Goods: A Framework for Ethics has contributed to a revival in divine command theories. In his review of the book, David Baggett writes, “In this substantive book, Robert Adams distills and crystallizes much of his previous work into an impressive two-tiered ethical framework: a divine nature theory of the Good and a divine command theory of the morally obligatory. The result is an expansive, integrated, and sophisticated ethical theory that merits great attention. If you’re interested in reading a robust defense of a divine command theory of ethics, the book is well worth the time. If you’d like to read the rest of Dr. Baggett’s review, you can find it here.
