  • Ethics Without Principlesby Jonathan Dancy

    Clarendon Press 2004; US$ 43.99

    Jonathan Dancy presents a long-awaited exposition and defence of particularism in ethics, a theory which he, perhaps more than anyone else, has developed and championed in recent years. Dancy's controversial claim, powerfully argued, is that the traditional link between morality and principles, or between being moral and having principles, is little... more...

  • A Companion to Ethicsby Peter Singer

    Wiley 2013; US$ 54.95 US$ 49.45

    In this volume, some of today's most distinguished philosophers survey the whole field of ethics, from its origins, through the great ethical traditions, to theories of how we ought to live, arguments about specific ethical issues, and the nature of ethics itself. The book can be read straight through from beginning to end; yet the inclusion of a multi-layered... more...

  • Moral Relativismby Steven Lukes

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 14.65

    Do we as humans have no shared standards by which we can understand each other? Do we truly have divergent views about what constitutes good and evil, harm and welfare, dignity and humiliation, or is there some underlying commonality that wins out? These questions show up everywhere, from the debate over female circumcision to the UN Declaration... more...

  • Reasons and the Goodby Roger Crisp

    Clarendon Press 2006; US$ 34.99

    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...

  • Natural Goodnessby Philippa Foot

    Clarendon Press 2001; US$ 37.99

    Natural Goodness is the long-awaited exposition of a highly original approach to moral philosophy, representing a fundamental break away from the assumptions of recent debates. Foot challenges many prominent philosophical arguments and attitudes; hers is not, however, a work of dry theory, but full of life and feeling, written for anyone intrigued... more...

  • Persons, Interests, and Justiceby Nils Holtug

    OUP Oxford 2010; US$ 43.99

    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...

  • Confucianism and Modernisationby Wei-Bin Zhang

  • 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...
