Description

The essays in this volume illuminate a central topic in ethical theory: moral dilemmas. Some contemporary philosophers dispute the traditional view that a true moral dilemma - a situation in which a person has two irreconcilable moral duties - cannot exist. The book provides the historical background to the on-going debate with selections from Kant, Mill, Bradley, and Ross. The best recent work is represented in essays by Donagan, Foot, Hare, Marcus, Nagel, van Fraassen, Williams, and others.show more

Review quote

A superb anthology....The selections, enhanced by substantial editorial contributions, have the clarity and organization required for a course text as well as the scope and depth to be a resource for anyone interested in the debate or its implications for either ethical theory or contemporary ethical problems. * Nous *show more
