"The Moral Life: An Introductory Reader in Ethics and Literature brings together an extensive and varied collection of 87 classical and contemporary readings on ethical theory and practice. Integrating literature with philosophy in an innovative way, editor Louis Pojman uses literary works to enliven and make concrete the ethical theory or applied issues addressed in each chapter. Literary works by Hugo, Hawthorne, Melville, Tolstoy, Ibsen, Huxley, Orwell, Camus, LeGuin, Styron, and many others lead students into philosophical concepts and issues such as relativism, utilitarianism, virtue ethics, the meaning of life, freedom, sex, love and marriage, and environmental ethics. Once introduced, these topics are developed further through readings by philosophers including Aristotle, Sartre, Bernard Williams, Jane English, and Thomas E. Hill, Jr. This unique anthology emphasizes the personal dimension of ethics, which is often ignored or minimized in ethics texts." "Featuring insightful part and chapter introductions as well as biographical sketches, abstracts, and study questions for each reading selection, The Moral Life is ideal for introductory ethics courses. It also provides an engaging gateway into personal and social ethics for the general reader."--Jacket

Terrorism, human rights, and the case for world government by Louis P Pojman( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the nation's leading military ethicists, Louis P. Pojman, argues that globalization and cosmopolitanism motivate the need for greater international cooperation based on enforceable international law. The best way to realize the promises of globalism and cogent moral arguments for cosmopolitanism, Pojman contends, is through the establishment of a world government." "In very readable prose, Pojman begins with a description of the growing menace of nonstate terrorism to people everywhere and distinguishes "old-style" from "new-style" terrorism. He examines the virtues and vices of nationalism, comparing them to the promises and problems of cosmopolitanism. Pojman ultimately argues that enforceable international law - which will promote peace and curtail terrorism - requires that we endorse a form of "soft nationalism." This form of nationalism is ultimately compatible with a limited, republican form of world government. Finally, he addresses universal human rights, arguing against the notion that they are an ethnocentric product of Western culture, and provides an overall justification of human rights as correlative to moral duties. Pojman concludes on a hopeful note and proposes a world government as an effective countermeasure, albeit ambitious and controversial, to terrorism and its causes."--Jacket
