The development of ethics : a historical and critical study by Terence Irwin( Book )

107 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terence Irwin presents a historical and critical study of the development of moral philosophy over two thousand years, from ancient Greece to the Reformation. Starting with the seminal ideas of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, he guides the reader through the centuries that follow, introducing each of the thinkers he discusses with generous quotations from their works. He offers not only careful interpretation but critical evaluation of what they have to offer philosophically. This. is the first of three volumes which will examine the history of ethics in the Socratic tradition, up to the late 20th century. A remarkable work of scholarship. Very few philosophers could produce a work of such scale and such erudition. Professor Irwin has studied his chosen authors with minute precision, and has read exhaustively in the secondary literature. Sources are conscientiously recorded and ample quotations provided in footnotes. The treatment of controversial issues is always balanced, and the eventual verdicts are always judicious... This book is a monument of erudition and patience, and gives. promise of similar virtues in the forthcoming successor volumes. - Anthony Kenny, Times Literary Supplement

A general introduction places philosophers and schools within their historical context. Selections from the writings of ancient philosophers - some new translations - are interspersed with Terence Irwin's incisive commentary and at times with brief contributions from modern philosophers. Topics covered include natural philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, the soul, free will, moral philosophy, political philosophy, and religious belief."--Jacket
