Adopting a historical approach to moral philosophy, this clear introductory text discusses in chronological sequence the theories of major ethical philosophers. Norman redraws traditional boundaries to include not only Plato, Aristotle, Hume, Kant, and Mill, but also Hegelian ethics and the contributions of Marx and Freud to our understanding of the nature and limits of morality. Intended for undergraduates, the book is structured for use as a basic text in introductory courses on ethics.

Review:

The writing throughout is clear and pleasant to read. The factual information . . . is accurate; and the explanatory comments are apposite and illuminating. . . . All told, the main body of this book has a great deal to commend it. (W. D.Z Hudson, University of Exeter, Times Higher Education Supplement)

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1983, this revised edition has been completely updated, with a new chapter on Nietzsche and an entirely new section covering contemporary utilitarianism and right-based ethical theories.
