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.
