Ethics & Moral Philosophy

  • Love and Forgiveness for a More Just Worldby Hent de Vries; Nils F. Schott

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    One can love and not forgive, or out of love decide not to forgive. Or one can forgive but not love, or choose to forgive but not love the ones forgiven. Love and forgiveness follow parallel and largely independent paths, a truth we fail to acknowledge when we pressure others to both love and forgive. Though it is hard to imagine a peaceful world... more...

  • Heidegger and Politicsby Alexander S. Duff

    Cambridge University Press 2015; US$ 80.00

    This book traces Heidegger's influence on a variety of political movements to fundamental ambiguities in his understanding of everydayness and nihilism. more...

  • Social Ethics in a Changing Chinaby Huaihong He; John L. Thornton; Cheng Li

    Brookings Institution Press 2015; US$ 34.00

    Over the past half-century, China has experienced some incredible human dramas, ranging from Red Guard fanaticism and the loss of education for an entire generation during the Cultural Revolution, to the Tiananmen tragedy, the economic miracle, and its accompanying fad of money worship and the rampancy of official corruption. Social Ethics in a... more...

  • Ethical Lifeby Webb Keane

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    The human propensity to take an ethical stance toward oneself and others is found in every known society, yet we also know that values taken for granted in one society can contradict those in another. Does ethical life arise from human nature itself? Is it a universal human trait? Or is it a product of one?s cultural and historical context? Webb Keane... more...

  • Kierkegaard and the Philosophy of Loveby Michael Strawser

    Lexington Books 2015; US$ 84.99

  • Strangers Drowningby Larissa MacFarquhar

    Penguin Publishing Group 2015; US$ 27.95

    What does it mean to devote yourself wholly to helping others? In Strangers Drowning , Larissa MacFarquhar seeks out people living lives of extreme ethical commitment and tells their deeply intimate stories; their stubborn integrity and their compromises; their bravery and their recklessness; their joys and defeats and wrenching dilemmas. A couple... more...

  • Way Too Coolby Shannon Winnubst

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 27.99

    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of cool have informed the American ethos since at least the 1970s. Whether we strive for it in politics or fashion, cool is big business for those who can sell it across a range of markets and media. Yet the concept wasn?t always a popular commodity. Cool began as a potent aesthetic of post-World War II black culture,... more...

  • On Inequalityby Harry G. Frankfurt

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 14.95

    Economic inequality is one of the most divisive issues of our time. Yet few would argue that inequality is a greater evil than poverty. The poor suffer because they don?t have enough, not because others have more, and some have far too much. So why do many people appear to be more distressed by the rich than by the poor? In this provocative book,... more...

  • Rationality as Virtueby Dr Lydia Schumacher; Professor Kevin Vanhoozer; Professor Martin Warner

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 109.95

    For much of the modern period, theologians and philosophers of religion have struggled with the problem of proving that it is rational to believe in God. Drawing on the thought of Thomas Aquinas, this book lays the foundation for an innovative effort to overturn the longstanding problem of proving faith's rationality, and to establish instead that... more...
