Summary
"Eight Theories of Ethics is a comprehensive introduction to the theories of ethics encountered by first-time students. Gordon Graham introduces the fundamental concepts that underpin ethics, such as relativism and objectivity, and then devotes his attention to each of the eight major theories of ethics." "Throughout the book, the exposition draws on examples from great moral philosophers such as Aristotle, Kant and Mill, as well as contemporary debates over human nature, the environment and citizenship." "Eight Theories of Ethics is written with detailed suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter - including original sources and contemporary discussions. It is ideal for anyone coming to this area of philosophy for the first time, and for those studying ethics in related disciplines such as politics, law, nursing and medicine."--Jacket
