Introduction

This book aims to articulate a phenomenologically-inspired moral realism by exploiting the idea that moral experience functions as a starting-point of every theoretical description of morality and as a fi rst principle on the basis of which we can establish criteria of evaluation for moral actions and moral agents. Besides appealing to insights stemming from the phenomenological tradition, this idea will be developed through an extended text-centered reading of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics.
