The heart of Abelard's theory of intention in 'Ethics' is that sin is based on intention, not on the act, or even on the dispostion to do the act. An inference he makes from this is that the Roman soldiers who crucified Jesus were not acting sinfully by that act.

They were acting lawfully.5/5(3). Peter Abelard () was a French Medieval philosopher and theologian. In this book, Abelard uses dialogue to fashion the argument that God may be defined as the “Ultimate Good”. Myths have risen historically because of the tendency of men to complicate and personify religion/5.

Abelard's major ethical writings--Ethics, or Know Yourself, and Dialogue between a Philosopher, a Jew and a Christian, are presented here in a student edition including cross-references, explanatory notes, a full table of references, bibliography, and index.

Peter Abelard sets out an innovative ethical theory that identifies intentions as the core of moral life. Peter Abelard’s Ethical Writings deals with describing and identifying sin. He insists that sin is beyond action and is committed by the consent of one’s mind and soul to do wrong.

He insists that sin is beyond action and is committed by the consent of one’s mind and soul to do wrong. Text of a short talk I gave at the Gregynog Student Colloquium on February 8 about the ethics of Peter Abelard, for an audience of (primarily) undergraduates.

Mostly exegetical, with some suggestions as to how aspects of his thought may relate. This book has been cited by the following publications. This book offers a major reassessment of the philosophy of Peter Abelard (–) which argues that he was not, as usually presented, a predominantly critical thinker but a constructive one.

Part III analyses Abelard's ethical theory, showing that it is far wider and more Author: John Marenbon. Abstract: "In his ethical writings Peter Abelard declared the accomplishment of good deeds irrelevant to a person’s merit.

Also, he denied that acts had any moral value in themselves. The article argues that both theses are contradicted by the purport of Abelard’s ethical teaching. Abelard taught ethics on 3 levels: I am now going to gloss his categories 1) God and his providential ordering of the universe, now better put as acceptance of reality.

In the works of the great writers of what is crudely called the ‘pre-scientific’ age, it is reasonable to read the word ‘god’ in a manner that generally makes sense by taking the word to mean ‘everything that is’.

Peter Abelard (/ ˈ æ b. l ɑːr d /; Latin: Petrus Abaelardus or Abailardus; French: Pierre Abélard, pronounced [ːʁ]; c. – 21 April ) was a medieval French scholastic philosopher, theologian, and preeminent logician.

His love for, and affair with, Héloïse d'Argenteuil has become legendary. The Chambers Biographical Dictionary describes him as "the keenest thinker Era: 11th-century philosophy, Medieval philosophy. the agent’s intention determines the moral worth of an action.

Now even in Abelard’s day, the common understanding of morality2 seemed to endorse the following principle: (P) An agent should intend to ϕonly if bringing about ϕwould be good But Abelard replaces (P) with its obverse, a principle he identifies as theFile Size: KB.

This article notes that two medieval philosophers achieve centrality in the history of moral intention: Peter Abelard and William of Ockham, who alike adopt the strong position of claiming that.

This chapter argues that Abelard understood, incorporated, and in some cases developed more fully an ethical outlook to be found in Augustine’s writings. In characterizing sin as contempt of God, Abelard rejects views that maintain that sin is a vice, or a bad deed, or even the will to perform a bad deed.

Sin is precisely the intention to do evil. Abelard thus distinguishes sharply between. The heart of Abelard's theory of intention in 'Ethics' is that sin is based on intention, not on the act, or even on the dispostion to do the act.

An inference he makes from this is that the Roman soldiers who crucified Jesus were not acting sinfully by that act. They were acting lawfully.5/5(6).

The most comprehensive compilation of the works of Abelard and Heloise ever presented in a single volume in English, The Letters and Other Writings features an accurate and stylistically faithful new translation of both The Calamities of Peter Abelard and the remarkable letters it sparked between the ill-fated twelfth-century philosopher and his brilliant former student and lover -- an.

a hallmark of the ethical thought of Peter Abelard (–) is his idea that sin consists only in consent to what is not fitting, in an intention to do what is contrary to God's will and thus manifest contempt for the creator.

sin is then not found in the will, nor in the possession of vices—nor even in the doing of evil deeds. some find this a hopelessly subjective ethical standpoint, or even entirely empty.

The Moral Theory was first fully developed in the writings of Peter Abelard ( - ) in the 12th century CE. 2 Abelard was an French abbot, theologian and philosopher. His birth surname was du Pallet; he took the nickname Abelard while in college.

He had a rather interesting private life. Abelard fell in love with a woman whose uncle-guardian owned the house where he was boarding. Throughout his tumultuous career, Peter Abelard faced a series of vehement backlashes against his theological work as well as the manner in which he conducted his personal life; indeed, his affair and secret marriage to Heloise famously culminated in a physical castration, and his conflicts with Bernard and William of St.

Ethical Writings: 'Ethics' and 'Dialogue Between a Philosopher, a Jew and a Christian' by Peter Abelard, Translated by Paul Vincent Spade, Introduced by Marilyn McCord Adams. Most major theologeans have written on ethics, but Abelard's works are more important to his corpus of work than with most others.5/5(6).

Peter Abelard spent the last years of his life as a monk in Saône-et-Loire, France, and taught in the school at the Cluny Monastery. He died in ; Héloïse died in and was buried beside him. The primary legacy of Peter Abelard is his contributions to philosophy, ethics, and theology. The three primary schools of ethics that can be used in discussing ethical problems and dilemmas are care-based ethics, rule-based ethics, and end-based ethics.

In the case of ethical dilemma number 2, if one were to apply care-based ethics, then both of the adult parties in the situation would yield to what would be best for the child.
