THE SUPERIORITY OF THE BRITISH TRADITION
Sommers will argue that the tradition based on feeling is superior to the tradition based on reason.
For Sommers, the German tradition in ethics helped in the German attitude towards the Jews in WWII. This is because Jews were reclassified as nonpersons by the Nazis, and only persons have respect and moral protection in the German tradition in ethics.
For Sommers then, there must be something defective in German moral philosophy.
