Ethics and Politics: Volume 2 by Alasdair MacIntyre
Book DescriptionAlasdair MacIntyre is one of the most creative and important philosophers working today. This volume presents a selection of his classic essays on ethics and politics collected together for the first time, focussing particularly on the themes of moral disagreement, moral dilemmas, and truthfulness and its importance. The essays range widely in scope, from Aristotle and Aquinas and what we need to learn from them, to our contemporary economic and social structures and the threat which they pose to the realization of the forms of ethical life. They will appeal to a wide range of readers across philosophy and especially in moral philosophy, political philosophy, and theology.

Where should an account of the virtues begin? This book argues that we should begin with the facts of vulnerability and disability, and of dependence on others, to which moral philosophers have given insufficient attention, and with the animal nature of human beings - that which exhibits their kinship to members of other intelligent species.
