Ethics Done Right by Elijah Millgram
Book DescriptionEthics Done Right examines how practical reasoning can be put into the service of ethical and moral theory. Elijah Millgram shows that the key to thinking about ethics is to understand generally how to make decisions. The papers in this volume support a methodological approach and trace the connections between two kinds of theory in utilitarianism, in Kantian ethics, in virtue ethics, in Hume's moral philosophy, and in moral particularism. Unlike other studies of ethics, Ethics Done Right does not advocate a particular moral theory. Rather, it offers a tool that enables one to decide for oneself.

Milgram's innovative book challenges us to face this dilemma squarely. " Mark Wilson, Univeristy of Pittsburgh "A fine book: ambitious, provocative, and engaging.
