Books By Author Professor C. A. J. Coady

Messy Morality by Professor C. A. J. Coady Messy Morality, Hardback (November 2008)

Tony Coady explores the challenges that morality poses to politics. He steers a course between realism, which rejects morality in politics, and moralism, which has a distorting influence on a realistic political morality; he seeks to rehabilitate the concept of ideals; and he discusses the contentious topics of 'dirty hands' and lying in politics.

Morality and Political Violence by Professor C. A. J. Coady Morality and Political Violence, Paperback (October 2007)

In this book, Coady brings a philosophical and ethical perspective to the subject of political violence.

Testimony by Professor C. A. J. Coady Testimony, Paperback (October 1994)

The role of testimony in the getting of reliable belief or knowledge is a central but neglected epistemological issue. In this work of original philosophy, Professor Coady explores the nature of testimony and the philosophical debates about it, in order to show how it might be defended as a source of knowledge.
