What are the philosophical foundations of moral life? Randolph Feezell and Curtis Hancock seek the answer In a series of fascinating fictional dialogues. The participants-all educated people from diverse walks of life-hold eight lively conversations on everything from the definition to the value of ethics. They critically discuss many of the prevailing theories concerning the foundations of ethics, including Divine Command theory, relativism, egoism, utilitarianism, and deontology. The book also contains distinctive treatments of a natural law approach to virtue-ethics and Carol Gilligan's widely discussed account of female moral development in the context of an ethic of care. Every dialogue ends with a list of key terms, epigrams, and suggested readings. THE DIALOGUES One What Is Ethics? Two Ethics and Religion Three Ethics and Relativism Four Ethics and Self-Interest Five Ethics and Consequences Six Ethics and Persons Seven Ethics and Virtue Eight Ethics and Female Voices Epilogue Is Ethics Worthwhile?
