You've got utilitarianism, you've got deontology, you've got virtue ethics, you've got divine command theory. You've got meta-ethics, you've got applied ethics.
It's a wide spectrum. And yet, it's a mixed bag. Some of this might be due to the publication date of my particular copy. The most recent material within is from the s, and there's a certain flavor of the times there.
A few articles talk abou This is a textbook reader of various positions across the realm of Western moral philosophy. A few articles talk about the merits or poverty of education reform, as the Reagan moralizing gave way to the Clinton technocracy.
A few articles talk about the surge of academic feminism and its "critique" of everything. Some more articles talk about "lifeboat ethics" and famine relief, as well as animal rights and environmentalism. Most of the philosophy on display is rather, if not "neutral," at least bland to the flavors of contemporary politics, or else so historical to pass beyond that realm.
What's left, though, is an amusing and IMO pathetic array of mostly American conservative pundits - and although I would not be so elitist to say that only academic philosophers are true philosophers, most of this subset of writers are at best "cultural commentators.
When the conservative view comes through, the sense I get is one of standing athwart history yelling "stop," or grumblingly huffing about "tough truths" and tradition and "that's just the way things are," when in moral philosophy things are nowhere near that clear. The section on Virtue was a bit dry ironic for being one part of the title! Not all the chapters are agreeable, but many nonetheless have value - "Sinners in the hands of an angry God" is one such; it's well written and absolutely morally disgusting from my perspective.
Note though that many, many contemporary! Christians hold to that view at least in part. See more clearly the vast moral-intuitive gulf there. Would I recommend this book? It's tough to say. If you like philosophy, especially moral philosophy, it has good merit for its grab-bag approach, and you will indeed see all sorts of views and literary genres represented there. The implicit thesis, that moral philosophy is in lots of things and not just philosophical essays, is well defended by the selection.
So, a tough 3 stars. But who said moral philosophy was easy? This was the textbook for my ethics class as an undergraduate. White taught the course. This was the only course I had with him in my career. Anyhow, we delved into many of the controversial issues of the day. I recall the class being much better than I expected. Philosophy should be mandatory in college, as an orientation to higher thinking.
This book is a lovely guide to the field of ethics. Nov 18, Ashley rated it really liked it. I had to read this for my last class, and it was actually really good. It's just a collection of essays. May 26, uroosa rated it really liked it. Jul 31, Latasha rated it really liked it Shelves: textbooks.
Great anthology of philosophical writing. Sometimes boring, but it's a textbook. So learning about ethical theory isn't my thing. That's what I learned from this book.

Consumers' attempts to control their unwanted consumption impulses influence many everyday purchases with broad implications for marketers' pricing policies. Addressing theoreticians and practitioners alike, this paper uses multiple empirical methods to show that consumers voluntarily and strategically ration their purchase quantities of goods that are likely to be consumed on impulse and that therefore may pose self-control problems.

Не забывай и о сильнейшем стрессе, связанном с попыткой шантажировать наше агентство… Сьюзан замолчала. Какими бы ни были обстоятельства, она почувствовала боль от потери талантливого коллеги-криптографа. Мрачный голос Стратмора вывел ее из задумчивости. - Единственный луч надежды во всей этой печальной истории - то, что Танкадо путешествовал. Есть шанс, что его партнер пока ничего не знает. Испанские власти обещали придержать информацию - столько, сколько смогут.
Мидж… у меня нет никакой жизни. Она постучала пальцем по кипе документов: - Вот твоя жизнь, Чед Бринкерхофф. - Но, посмотрев на него, смягчилась. - Могу я чем-нибудь тебе помочь, прежде чем уйду.
Когда церковь получит все останки этого великого человека, она причислит его к лику святых и разместит отдельные части его тела в разных соборах, чтобы все могли проникнуться их величием. - А у вас здесь… - Беккер не сдержал смешка. - Да.
Как, вы сказали, имя девушки, которую нанял ваш брат. - Рыжеволосая, - сказал Беккер, уклоняясь от ответа. - Рыжеволосая? - переспросила .
Они ищут, господин.
