Abstract:

The main ideas and their transformations within the domain of moral philosophy since the beginning of this century receive a lucid and discriminating exposition in this book for both student and general reader. The author first outlines problems that have been of deepest concern in England and the United States and on the Continent since Berkeley and Hume demolished Cartesianism, and then analyzes in some detail the responses of influential modern thinkers to these problems. Writings, taken in chronological order, have been selected from the many books and articles on ethics as those likely to be lastingly important, and many quotations are included.
