How should we live? How should we act? How might we live? These are the three questions of moral philosophy. Brent Adkins traces the history of ethics and morality by examining six thinkers: Aristotle, Spinoza, Kant, Mill, Nietzsche, and Levinas.
The book is divided into 3 sections: Ethics, Morality and Beyond.
Two thinkers are paired in each section to show you how the important questions of moral philosophy have been answered so that you might better answer them for yourself.
You'll learn what the philosophers actually said about how to live the best kind of life and, more importantly, why.
