Divine Motivation Theory

Zagzebski, L. T. Divine Motivation Theory. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004.

"At the core of the book lies a new form of virtue theory based on the emotions. Distinct from deontological, consequentialist, and teleological virtue theories, this one has a particular theological, indeed Christian, foundation. The new theory helps to resolve philosophical problems and puzzles of various kinds: the dispute between cognitivism and noncognitivism in moral psychology; the claims and counterclaims of realism and antirealism in the metaphysics of value; and paradoxes of perfect goodness in natural theology, including the problem of evil."
