Product Description:

[ The Story of Ethics: Fulfilling Our Human Nature By ( Author ) Jul-2002 Paperback

Review:

"Finally, a user-friendly history of moral philosophy. Clark and Poortenga have produced a thorough and accessible history written in a lively and engaging style. It will be especially welcomed as a textbook by those of us who find it impossible to introduce students to moral philosophy without introducing them to its history. It will also be useful to philosophical beginners looking for an introduction to the history of ethics or to the more advanced student looking for a review." — David Solomon, H. P and W B. White Director, Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, University of Notre Dame

"Clark and Poortenga's book has the advantage of not only being short enough but also of communicating to an undergraduate in a conversational style that is accessible without sacrificing the profundity of the issues it raises. It shows students how thinkers even as remote in time as Plato were asking questions that they-students-discover are their own questions: Is morality all relative? Why is just following the rules good enough? What kind of person do 1 want to become? What is the best way to live my life?" — Rebecca Konyndyk De Young, Calvin College

"Clark and Poortenga have constructed a helpful and interesting journey through the history of ethics from ancient times to the contemporary world. Their book is one that will enable students to draw upon a rich philosophical tradition in answering the questions that matter in their own lives." — Gordon Graham, Regius Professor of Moral Philosophy, University of Aberdeen
