  • Reasons and the Goodby Roger Crisp

    Clarendon Press 2006; US$ 34.99 US$ 30.09

    In Reasons and the Good Roger Crisp answers some of the oldest questions in moral philosophy. Fundamental to ethics, he claims, is the idea of ultimate reasons for action; and he argues controversially that these reasons do not depend on moral concepts. He investigates the nature of reasons themselves, and how we come to know them. He defends a hedonistic... more...

  • Persons, Interests, and Justiceby Nils Holtug

    OUP Oxford 2010; US$ 43.99 US$ 37.83

    In our lives, we aim to achieve welfare for ourselves, that is, to live good lives. But we also have another, more impartial perspective, where we aim to balance our concern for our own welfare against a concern for the welfare of others. This is a perspective of justice. Nils Holtug examines these two perspectives and the relations between them. more...

  • The Retrieval of Ethicsby Talbot Brewer

    OUP Oxford 2009; US$ 39.99 US$ 34.39

    Talbot Brewer offers a new approach to ethical theory, founded on a far-reaching reconsideration of the nature and sources of human agency.

  • Ethical Intuitionismby Professor Michael Huemer

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 40.00

    A defence of ethical intuitionism where (i) there are objective moral truths; (ii) we know these through an immediate, intellectual awareness, or 'intuition'; and (iii) knowing them gives us reasons to act independent of our desires. The author rebuts the major objections to this theory and shows the difficulties in alternative theories of ethics. more...
