Summary: Louis Pojman's new HOW SHOULD WE LIVE? is a concise and engaging text that offers a provocative discussion of the central questions and theories in moral philosophy. Crafted by one of contemporary philosophy's most gifted teachers, it begins with a poignant meditation on Golding's LORD OF THE FLIES, a starting point for an eye-opening examination of central metaethical concepts such as relativism, objectivism, egoism, and whether or not religion is a necessity for mo ...show morerality. From there Pojman presents with even-handed consideration and in a readily accessible style the three most seminal ethical theories: utilitarianism, deontology, and virtue-based ethics. The book's discussion culminates with a very timely exploration of the grounds for human rights in today's increasingly global society.

Benefits:

  • The book's central focus is to explore the question of why or how we should be moral in a time plagued by relativism.
  • The book includes extensive discussion of the relationship between religion and ethics.
  • In the final chapter and building upon what has preceded it, Pojman develops a theory of human rights especially relevant to the globalized world of the 21st century.
  • End of chapter discussion questions and bibliography assist students in contemplating the most central issues encountered in the text and in pursuing additional research.
  • Packaged with any of Wadsworth's exceptional list of ethical theory and applied ethics titles, with the OPPOSING VIEWPOINTS RESOURCE CENTER, or with readings from Wadsworth's PROTEUS CLASSICS, HOW SHOULD WE LIVE becomes an ideal supplement for
