Synopsis: What is morality? This is the question this book is dealing with. The aim of the study is to show the distorting character of many common pictures of what morality is, pictures found inside and outside of philosophy. The central idea of the book is that the distorting character of these pictures is that they make it possible for me to escape my moral responsibility. Focusing on responsibility and our attempts to shut our eyes to it, questions such as the following are discussed: Is there a moral reality? Is it possible to show someone else what is good and bad? What is the relation between morality and religion? Are there moral truths? What can philosophically be said about the meaning of life?
About the Author: The Author: Hugo Strandberg is Researcher at the Department of Philosophy at the Åbo Akademi University (Finland). He is the author of The Possibility of Discussion: Relativism, Truth and Criticism of Religious Belief (2006).
