Values and Virtues by Timothy Chappell
Book DescriptionAfter 25 centuries, Aristotle's influence on our society's moral thinking remains profound even when subterranean. Typical members of our society can often be made to see that their moral thought and action are, in crucial ways, unwittingly Aristotelian. No one in contemporary philosophical ethics can afford to ignore Aristotle. Much of the finest work in recent moral philosophy has been overtly and professedly Aristotelian in inspiration. And many writers who would officially distance themselves from Aristotle and his contemporary followers are nonetheless indebted to him, sometimes in ways that they do not realise. Values and Virtues provides a platform for some notable writers in the area to present and discuss their new ideas about Aristotelian ethics in a way that will advance the academic debate and engage the interest of a broad range of philosophical readers.

Books By Author Timothy Chappell
Knowing What To Do, Hardback (March 2014)
Timothy Chappell develops a picture of what philosophical ethics can be like, once set aside from conventional moral theory. His question is 'How are we to know what to do?', and the answer he defends is 'By developing our moral imaginations'-a key part of human excellence, which plays many roles in our practical and evaluative lives.
Problem of Moral Demandingness, Hardback (September 2009)
How much can morality demand of well-off Westerners as a response to the plight of the poor and starving in the rest of the world? What does the answer tell us about the nature of morality? The cutting edge of this contemporary ethical debate is represented by eleven new essays from some of the world's leading moral philosophers.
Human Values, Paperback (December 2007)
The recent revival of natural law theory in modern moral philosophy has been an exciting and important development. This book brings together an international group of moral philosophers who make original contributions to the project of developing natural law ethics as a comprehensive treatment of modern ethical theory and practice.
Reading Plato's Theaetetus, Paperback (March 2005)» View all books by Timothy Chappell
This book intersperses philosophical commentary with a new translation of the whole dialogue to present an original case for thinking that Plato's aim in the Theaetetus is to further the cause of his own anti-empiricist theory of knowledge by testing -- and destroying -- a series of empiricist theories of knowledge.
