Description - An Introduction to Moral Philosophy and Moral Education by Robin Barrow

This book presents and argues for a moral theory which draws on most of the major theoretical positions to some degree, but it also spells out the limits and boundaries of a moral theory. In doing so, it exposes a number of common confusions and misunderstandings about morality, and presents a strong argument for some indisputable truths in relation to the moral sphere. Divided into four parts, the book covers the key issues within moral philosophy: * part one provides a lucid and powerful account of the nature and limits of moral theory, sharply distinguishing it from religion * part two outlines a positive moral theory by exploring the defining principles of morality and the reasons for being moral * part three distinguishes moral values from others such as ecological, health and safety and sexual values * part four is concerned with the implications of our moral understanding for moral education. While this book concentrates on argument and ideas, a commentary to each chapter provides historical context and contemporary reference points. It will prove an invaluable resource for students of both Education and Philosophy.
