Book Cover
The Blackwell Guide to Ethical Theory

Ranging from moral realism to virtue ethics, this superb new volume presents a thorough survey of ethical theory.

Written by an international assembly of leading moral philosophers, twenty-one newly-commissioned papers develop the themes, discuss the problems, and evaluate the arguments of the main normative and meta-ethical philosophical outlooks. Contributors are Michael Smith, Simon Blackburn, Philip L. Quinn, James Rachels, Jeff McMahan, John D. Caputo, Elliott Sober, Laurence Thomas, R. G. Frey, Brad Hooker, F. M. Kamm, Thomas E. Hill, Jr., Geoffrey Sayre-McCord, David McNaughton, L. W. Sumner, Jan Narveson, Michael Slote, Alison Jagger, William R. Schroeder, Hugh LaFollette, and James P. Sterba.

This volume is arguably the most ambitious and authoritative survey of ethical theory available. It serves as a resource for professionals as well as a comprehensive guide for both students and general readers alike.
