This is a reminder for:

Title: Thomas Dougherty
  A Tale of Two Moralities

What is the the nature of morality? I distinguish two views we can take of  
this. On one view, which dominates contemporary discussion, morality is a  
system of guidance: as such, moral requirements are  grounded in reasons  
for action. On the other view, which was more popular in previous eras,  
morality is a system of sanctions: moral requirements are grounded in  
reasons for sanctions. I proceed to argue that conceiving of morality as  
sanctions has a distinctive theoretical advantage: it allows us to provide  
an attractive foundation for common deontological intuitions.
