520 1  "Jesse J. Prinz argues that recent work in philosophy, 
       neuroscience, and anthropology supports two radical 
       hypotheses about the nature of morality: moral values are 
       based on emotional responses, and these emotional 
       responses are inculcated by culture, not hard-wired 
       through natural selection." "Throughout the book, Prinz 
       relates his view to contemporary and historical work in 
       philosophical ethics. His views echo themes in the 
       writings of David Hume and Friedrich Nietzsche, but Prinz 
       supports, extends, and revises these classic theories 
       using the resources of cutting-edge cognitive science. The
       Emotional Construction of Moral will stimulate and 
       challenge anyone who is curious about the nature and 
       origin of moral values."--BOOK JACKET.
