The text in question is:
"In addition to posing philosophical problems in its own right, moral reasoning is of interest on account of its implications for moral facts and moral theories."
(source: Moral Reasoning By Henry S. Richardson)
I have three questions to ask:
- What does the word "its" in the phrase "its implications" refer to? I think that the word its refers to philosophy's but I am not sure.
What does the word implications here mean? I understand the literal meaning of the word but I can't figure out what it means in the context.
What does the phrase "of interest on account of its implications" mean? I think the phrase means "an interest in figuring out its implications" but I am sure about that either.
Could you please help me clarify it? Thank you always.
