Product Description

What is good? What is right? How can we know what we ought to do? Holmes's classic introduction to the study of morality examines cultural relativism, emotivism, ethical egoism, and utilitarianism. Outlining a Christian ethic, he explores its application to human rights, criminal punishment, legislated morality, and sexual behavior. This second edition includes new material on moral agents and virtue ethics.

Arthur F. Holmes (Ph.D., Northwestern) is professor emeritus of philosophy at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois.

Publisher's Description

With over 60,000 copies in print since its original publication in 1984, Ethics has served numerous generations of students as a classic introduction to philosophical ethics from a Christian perspective. Over the years the philosophical landscape has changed somewhat, and in this second edition Arthur Holmes adjusts the argument and information throughout, completely rewriting the original chapter on virtue ethics and adding a new chapter on the moral agent. Holmes addresses the questions: What is good? What is right? How can we know? In doing so he also surveys a variety of approaches to ethics, including cultural relativism, emotivism, ethical egoism and utilitarianism—all with an acknowledgment of the new postmodern environment.
