Varieties of Moral Personality by Owen J. Flanagan
Book DescriptionOwen Flamagan argues in this book for a more psychologically realistic ethical reflection and spells out the ways in which psychology can enrich moral philosophy. Beginning with a discussion of such "moral Saints" as Grandhi, Mother Teresa, and Oskar Schindler, Flanagan charts a middle course between an ethics that is too realistic and sociallly parochial and one that is to idealistic, giving no weight to our natures.

Books By Author Owen J. Flanagan
Really Hard Problem, Paperback (March 2009)
A noted philosopher proposes a naturalistic (rather than supernaturalistic) way to solve the "really hard problem": how to live in a meaningful way--how to live a life that really matters--even as a finite material being living in a material world.
Narrative and Consciousness, Paperback (July 2003)
The evocation of narrative as a way to understand the content of consciousness has sparked truly interdisciplinary work among psychologists, philosophers and literary critics. The research presented in this volume should appeal to the general reader and researchers enmeshed in these problems.
Problem of the Soul, Paperback (June 2003)
A reconciliation of two conflicting visions of what a person is--one embedded in our humanistic traditions, the other advanced by mind science--from one of the most influential philosophers of our time
Dreaming Souls, Paperback (May 2001)» View all books by Owen J. Flanagan
In this text, the author provides both an accessible survey of the latest research on sleep and dreams and a theory about the nature and function of dreaming. Flanagan argues that while sleep has a clear biological function and adaptive value, dreams are merely side effects.
