If one is going to go after sacred cows, one should really go after sacred cows. Most of the people in our society who get credit for "going after sacred cows" are just going after unfashionable ones. At least ones that are unfashionable in the circles they want to appeal to. We live in a world of iconodules posing as iconoclasts.

After Virtue Revisited Ia

I'll have more to write on the updated version of "After Virtue," but until then there is this Spengler post independently supporting the idea that the enlightenment project of justifying morality has failed, at least with respect to Kant and his philosophical heirs. (D. Layman doesn't refer to other branches of this heritage in that particular post; MacIntyre does, and as I said I'll get back to him later).
