Appiah's Honor Code: Between Theory and Practice (in Arabic).

Auther : Mohamed al-Wuhaib , Shaikha Binjasim

In his book, The Honor Code: How Moral Revolutions Happen, Kwame Anthony Appiah discusses the causes of moral progress, paying special attention to a concept that is rarely discussed in philosophical circles: honor. This paper offers a critical examination of Appiah's basic claims on honor by focusing closely on the application of his theory. We argue that there is a curious ambiguity inherent in this concept between it being a driving cause for immoral actions and a tool for deterring such actions. This paper examines the concept of honor in its relation to the concepts of identity, law, and ethical duty.
