Description

Unifying Ethics provides a simple yet powerful response to the ethical challenge of our time: How can respect for diversity be encouraged, but also honesty, responsibility, and other desirable attitudes, values, and behaviors be encouraged? The book presents five approaches to ethical evaluation. These approaches are grounded respectively in consequences, virtues, deontology, intuition, and tradition.
