His work was constructive in aim and, to a large extent, in achievement; and it was inspired by a belief in the importance of right-thinking for life.
The latter characteristic Green shared with most of the writers who sympathised with his philosophical views, and it accounted for much of the enthusiasm with which these views were received.
Green’s dissection of the latter appeared, in 1874, in the form of two elaborate “introductions” to a new edition of Hume’s Treatise.
Thomas Hill Green's Prolegomena to Ethics (1374 words)
Green emphasizes that this approach to ethics, which claims that moral conduct is motivated by a desire for perfection and by a desire for the common good, has practical value when complex moral questions cannot be answered by intuition.
Green argues that the attainment of an object of desire may bring pleasure, but that pleasure is not always the object of desire.
Green’s answer is that we do not have to know the nature of the ultimate good in order to make our actions 'better.' We can improve our own conduct, even though we may not be able to fully define the nature of the ultimate good which is the goal of moral conduct.
