Description: InEthics: The Essential Writings,philosopher Gordon Marino skillfully presents an accessible, provocative anthology of both ancient and modern classics on matters moral. The philosophers represent 2,500 years of thought-from Plato, Kant, and Nietzsche to Alasdair MacIntyre, Susan Wolf, and Peter Singer-and cover a broad range of topics, from the timeless questions of justice, morality, and faith to the hot-button concerns of today, such as animal rights, our duties to the environment, and gender issues. Featuring an illuminating preamble, concise introductory essays on the giants of ethical theory, and incisive chapter headnotes to the modern offerings, this Modern Library edition is a perfect single-volume reference for students, teachers, and anyone eager to engage in reflection on ethical questions, including "What is the basis for our ethical views and judgments?" Gordon Marino is professor of philosophy and director of the Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. A recipient of the Richard J. Davis Ethics Award for excellence in writing on ethics and the law, he is the author ofKierkegaard in the Present Age, co-editor ofThe Cambridge Companion to Kierkegaard, and editor of theModern Libraryrs"s Basic Writings of Existentialism. His essays have appeared inThe New York Times.
