Ethics by G. E Moore( )

30 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"G.E. Moore was a central figure in twentieth-century philosophy. Along with Russell and Wittgenstein, he pioneered analytic philosophy, and his Principia Ethica shaped the contours of twentieth-century ethics. Indeed, until the publication of Rawls's A Theory of Justice, no single book in moral philosophy was to equal Principia's influence. Unfortunately, however, Principia Ethica has so dominated critical discussions of Moore's work that even experts on his moral philosophy have tended to ignore his Ethics, which he published eight years later. But Ethics (1912) is Moore's only other book on moral philosophy, and one of only a handful of post-Principia publications dealing with ethics

Most ethics courses these days, especially at the introductory level, put significant emphasis on contemporary moral issues and problems of applied ethics. [This text] is designed for use in such a course ... This [edition includes] a number of "classics" [essays] ... but also includes many recent, previously unanthologized [ones]. The majority of these are by eminent philosophers, but other selections represent important contributions by less well-known philosophers or by other writers with whom philosophy instructors may be unacquainted
Readings in the philosophy of law by John Arthur( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Arthur and William H. Shaw's Readings in the Philosophy of Law, Fourth Edition, is a collection of classical and contemporary philosophical and legal essays and legal cases. The focus is on legal philosophy as its own subject, rather than as an outgrowth of social or political philosophy or applied ethics. The essays focus on how law is organized and the particular philosophical issues that law raises. This text requires students to think through actual debates - many of them still live in the courts."--Jacket
Contemporary ethics : taking account of utilitarianism by William H Shaw( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimed at undergraduates, Contemporary Ethics presupposes little or no familiarity with ethics, and is written in a clear and engaging style. It provides students with a sympathetic but critical guide to utilitarianism, explaining its different forms and exploring the debates it has spawned. In so doing, the book leads students through a number of current issues in contemporary ethics that are connected to controversies over and within utilitarianism. At the same time, it uses utilitarianism to introduce students to ethics as a subject. In these ways, the book is not only a guide to utilitarianism, but also an introduction to some standard problems of ethics and to several important topics in contemporary ethical theory
Moore on right and wrong : the normative ethics of G.E. Moore by William H Shaw( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

G.E. Moore's work shaped twentieth century ethics. But while his metaethical doctrines have seen decades of debate, little attention has been paid to his normative theory. Yet Moore broke fresh and important ground in elaborating an indirect, sophisticated, and non-hedonistic form of utilitarianism. Moore on Right and Wrong is a critical reconstruction and exposition of this neglected side of his ethical thought. It situates his normative ethics with respect to traditional utilitarianism and assesses Moore's case for consequentialism. The final chapters explore in detail the implications of Moore's theory for individual moral conduct -- in particular, his denial of self-evident moral rules; his skepticism about knowledge of one's duty; his attempt to establish the validity of certain moral rules; and his account of what moral agents should do in situations where such rules apply and in situations where they do not

Utilitarianism and the ethics of war by William H Shaw( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a detailed utilitarian analysis of the ethical issues involved in war. 'Utilitarianism and the Ethics of War' addresses the two basic ethical questions posed by war: when, if ever, are we morally justified in waging war, and if recourse to arms is warranted, how are we permitted to fight the wars we wage? In addition, it deals with the challenge that realism and relativism raise for the ethical discussion of war, and with the duties of military personnel and the moral challenges they can face. In tackling these matters, the book covers a wide range of topics-from pacifism to armed humanitarian intervention, from the right of national defense to pre-emptive or preventive war, from civilian immunity to the tenets of just war theory and the moral underpinnings of the rules of war. But, what is distinctive about this book is that it provides a consistent and thorough-going utilitarian or consequentialist treatment of the fundamental normative issues that war occasions. Although it goes against the tide of recent work in the field, a utilitarian approach to the ethics of war illuminates old questions in new ways by showing how a concern for well-being and the consequences of our actions and policies shape the moral constraints to which states and other actors must adhere
