Abstract:   (378 Views)
Moral motivation is an important issue in meta-ethics. Its three basic issues include the nature of moral motivation, the nature of the relationship between moral judgment and moral motivation, and the relationship between moral motivation and the nature of moral attributes. Fakhr’s views are scholastic and theological, and from the point of view of contemporary moral philosophy, a modern reading of them is presented. Fakhr has a cognitive approach to the nature of moral motivation and holds that belief is necessary and sufficient to create a desire and stimulus for action. According to Fakhr's stance, the personality-oriented approach is complementary to the cognitive approach. The nature of the relationship between moral judgment and motivation is a revocable introspectivism. That is, there is a necessary but rescindable relationship between judgment and moral motivation. Regardless of its possible critiques, his transcendentalism is consistent with his theory of motivation. To him, moral judgments are beliefs about the transcendental existence of values in the essence of God that, with the help of personality-building factors, create a desire and lead to moral motivation.
Keywords: Fakhr ol-Din Razi, moral motivation, cognitive approach, revocable introversion, transcendental realism.
