Finite and Infinite Goods by Robert Merrihew Adams
Book DescriptionRenowned scholar Robert Adams explores the relation between religion and ethics through a comprehensive philosophical account of a theistically-based framework for ethics. Adams' framework begins with the good rather than the right, and with excellence rather than usefulness. He argues that loving the excellent, of which adoring God is a clear example, is the most fundamental aspect of a life well lived. Developing his original and detailed theory, Adams contends that devotion, the sacred, grace, martyrdom, worship, vocation, faith, and other concepts drawn from religious ethics have been sorely overlooked in moral philosophy and can enrich the texture of ethical thought.

Books By Author Robert Merrihew Adams
Theory of Virtue, Paperback (October 2008)
A Theory of Virtue is a systematic, comprehensive framework for thinking about the moral evaluation of character, proposing that virtue is chiefly a matter of being for what is good, and that virtues must be intrinsically excellent and not just beneficial or useful.
Leibniz, Paperback (October 1998)
Adams presents an interpretation of three parts of Leibniz's metaphysics, thoroughly grounded in the texts as well as in philosophical analysis and critique. The three areas discussed are the metaphysical part of Leibniz's philosophy of logic, his essentially theological treatment of the central issues of ontology, and his theory of substance.
Problem of Evil, Paperback (November 1990)
The problem of evil is an accessible topic which easily engages the interest of students. This book offers some of the writings in the subject, culled from periodicals and other sources. It includes a bibliography and an editorial introduction.
Virtue of Faith, Paperback (April 1987)» View all books by Robert Merrihew Adams
The author has been a leader in renewing philosophical respect for the idea that moral obligation may be founded on the command of God. This is a collection of his essays, two of them previously unpublished.
