  • The Virtues of Happinessby Paul Bloomfield

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 64.99

    As children, we learn life is unfair: bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. So, it is natural to ask, "Why play fairly in an unfair world? If being immoral will get you what you want and you know you can't get caught, why not do it?" The answers, as argued herein, begin by rejecting the idea that morality... more...

  • On Justifying Moral Judgements (Routledge Revivals)by Lawrence C. Becker

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 120.00

    Much discussion of morality presupposes that moral judgments are always, at bottom, arbitrary. Moral scepticism, or at least moral relativism, has become common currency among the liberally educated. This remains the case even while political crises become intractable, and it is increasingly apparent that the scope of public policy formulated with... more...

  • Evil: A Primerby William Hart

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 8.99

    "Today our nation saw evil." - President George W. Bush, September 11th 2001 Evil! Like a zombie back from the grave, it has arisen--a word many of us had long ago relegated to Sunday sermons, video games and horror flicks. But of course, evil is not old fashioned, nor has it ever gone away, and may be as robust as ever. So what is evil? Does it... more...

  • Philosophie der Menschenrechte von Martha C. Nussbaumby Adam Galamaga

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 22.42

    Die amerikanische Philosophin Martha C. Nussbaum legt ihrem Begründungsversuch der Menschenrechte eine essentialistische Lehre des Menschen zugrunde. Mit ihrem Ansatz ist sie nicht nur um eine Garantie von Rechten, sondern um eine umfassende Befähigung der Bürger zu einem guten Leben bemüht. Nach Nussbaums Auffassung entspringen die Menschenrechte,... more...

  • Taking Evil Seriouslyby Sami Pihlström

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    While moral philosophy has traditionally been understood as an examination of the good life, this book argues that ethical inquiry should, rather, begin from an examination of evil and other 'negative' moral concepts, such as guilt and suffering. more...
