Quotes | On
The following are quotes on Warnock:

Geoffrey Warnock argues that morality is linked with "the betterment—or non-deterioration—of the human predicament." According to Warnock, society has a natural tendency to get worse, an entropy of social relations. Because of limitations in resources, intelligence, knowledge, rationality, and sympathy, the social fabric tends to come apart, which as a result threatens to pro-duce a Hobbesian state of nature in which chaos reigns. Morality is antientropic. It opposes these limitations, especially by concentrating on expanding our sympathies.”
