Artikelomschrijving

The essential texts in the study of ethics, spanning generations of thought from Ancient Greece to contemporary practice, with commentary and context As the most recent addition to the Blackwell Readings in Philosophy Series, History of Ethics: Essential Readings with Commentary provides an essential review of the most important questions in the history of ethics: Is there an objective standard for moral behavior? How can we negotiate our own needs with the needs of the community? How do specific contemporary issues like abortion and animal rights complicate our belief systems? Through a carefully selected set of critical of texts, each supported by insightful commentary and instructive context from two of the leading scholars in the field, Daniel Star and Roger Crisp, this collection chronicles the movements in the history of ethics from a study largely concerned with the behaviors of individuals and groups to the emergence of metaethical, normative, and applied questions on the formulations, nature, psychology, and language of moral thought. With a focus on providing students with a clear grounding in longstanding ethical discussions, the editors have designed a valuable anthology of critical texts, both the widely-anthologized and the oft-overlooked, in a guided tour through the critical advances and most exciting ideas in a long philosophical tradition. Introduces students to the major movements in the historical study of ethics Charts patterns and trends of thought, providing insights into the key problems across the era of ethics history Includes both widely-anthologized and frequently-overlooked texts, as selected by leading scholars in ethical study Each text has been annotated with commentary by the editors to provide students with critical context and to highlight connections between the texts
