Contemporary Ethics: Taking Account Of Utilitarianism, William Shaw Dec 1998

Contemporary Ethics: Taking Account Of Utilitarianism, William Shaw

William H. Shaw

Aimed at undergraduates, Contemporary Ethics presupposes little or no familiarity with ethics and is written in a clear and engaging style. It provides students with a sympathetic but critical guide to utilitarianism, explaining its different forms and exploring the debates it has spawned. The book leads students through a number of current issues in contemporary ethics that are connected to controversies over and within utilitarianism. At the same time, it uses utilitarianism to introduce students to ethics as a subject. In these ways, the book is not only a guide to utilitarianism, but also an introduction to some standard problems ...

Should We Strive For Integrity?, Damian Cox, Marguerite La Caze, Michael Levine Dec 1998

Should We Strive For Integrity?, Damian Cox, Marguerite La Caze, Michael Levine

Damian Cox

Even by people whose moral views diverge widely, integrity is commonly thought of as something worthwhile, a valuable personal characteristic. It is, consequently, something we commonly suppose worth striving to cultivate both in ourselves and in those under our care. Nancy Schauber (1996) offers a provocative challenge to this conventional wisdom - arguing (in all seriousness) that integrity is either something we possess simply in virtue of being persons or else it is not something worth having. An analysis of her truncated accounts of integrity and commitment will show why her argument fails. That is does fail is a victory for ...

葡萄酒和酒瓶 -新儒家和中国权利思想, Stephen C. Angle Dec 1998

葡萄酒和酒瓶 -新儒家和中国权利思想, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Joseph Levenson argued that the discontinuity between traditional modern in China was so stark that even to the extent that things appeared similar, this was a matter of "new wine in old bottles": the words may have been the same, but what they meant had changed decisively. On the surface, "quanli" would appear a perfect example of Levenson's metaphor, since it seems to have been transformed from a derogatory word for the powers and profits that tempt the uncultivated - as seen, for instance, in the Xunzi - into "rights", the very foundation of modern ethics, politics and law. There is ...
