Ethical Theory for the Believing Mormon

Ethical Theory for the Believing Mormon Philosophers over the millenniums have developed several schools of philosophical ethics–some involving God, some not. Because some have tried to develop ethical theories that do not depend on revelation, Bruce R. McConkie has called philosophy a religion whose followers are apostates. Now that you’ve been warned, come hear some of us who still value philosophy and Mormonism speak about how well or how poorly Mormon doctrine (the body of beliefs, not the book) fits with prominent theories in philosophical ethics, including ‘divine command” ethics, Kantianism, and utilitarianism.
