Demandingness as a Virtue
Goodin, R. E. (2009). Demandingness as a Virtue. The Journal of Ethics, 13 (1): 1-13.
Abstract: Philosophers who complain about the ‘demandingness’ of morality forget that a morality can make too few demands as well as too many. What we ought be seeking is an appropriately demanding morality. This article recommends a ‘moral satisficing’ approach to determining when a morality is ‘demanding enough’, and an institutionalized solution to keeping the demands within acceptable limits.
