The normative commitments of the framework fared somewhat better, though they too were attacked. An intuitionist conception of justice [and by extension ethics] is, one might say, but half a conception.
Philosophical fashion is changing. The fortunes of intuitionism are now improving as various forms of the position work their way back into the philosophical mainstream. In his engaging new book, The Good in the Right , he aims to defend several of the account's traditional components. Audi's account of intuitionism is inspired in part by the ethical works of W.
He adopts the latter's broad framework while refining and defending it. The appeal here to historical figures is not insignificant, for part of what drives the resurgence of various forms of ethical intuitionism is the renewed interest in the historical proponents of its central elements, especially Henry Sidgwick, G.
