Can there be conflict between Conscience and Self-love?

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Ethical dualists hold that we have good reason to pursue our own happiness and good reason to pursue moral goodness. It would seem that there is a potential conflict here. On the other hand there have been those who deny even the possibility of conflict, whether or not there is a God and an afterlife. Rawls seems to say, or hint, that this was Butlers’ view, and Kant, according to at least one person, argued that there cannot be conflict here. I think the conflict is sometimes real, and that ‘practical reason’ does not resolve it.
