Ethical Theory 1 by James Rachels
Book DescriptionThe aim of this series is to bring together important recent writings in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly periodicals, which may not be conveniently available to the university student or the general reader. The editor of each volume contributes an introductory essay on the items chosen and on the questions with which they deal. A selective bibliography is appended as a guide to further reading. Ethical Theory 1: The Question of Objectivity deals with the question of objectivity in ethics and the viability of moral realism, focusing on what moral judgments mean, whether morality can be objective, and whether there are any such things as moral facts. It includes a clearly written, substantial, and critical introduction guiding the beginner through the intricacies of the subject. Ethical Theory Volumes 1 and 2 together provide an overview of contemporary moral philosophy, reprinting classic and contemporary articles, many of which are not otherwise readily available.
