Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Morals: morals refers to a more or less coded set of rules, action maxims, duties and prohibitions within a society or group. Most of these rules are unconsciously internalized among the members of the society or group. Their justification and the possible assessment of actions are reflected in ethics and meta ethics. See also values, norms, rights, ethics.

V 69/70
Morality / Ethics / Psychology / Psychoanalysis / Rorty: what metaphysics does not make, also cannot be made by the psychology - also Freud has no explanation of "moral motives".

Moral / content / Hegel / Rorty: the moral standpoint is meaningless.
V 89
Morality / justice / universality/ Rawls / Rorty: a general moral concept can not provide the basis for a public concept of justice - instead: conflicting and incommensurable concepts must be taken into account.
