Rediscovering values : coming to terms with Postmodernism by Hugh Mercer Curtler( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book doesn't simply take others to task; it does present a new and interesting theory of valuation, and it speaks in a direct and non-technical way to the reader who is alarmed by the decline of values in all aspects of modern life. It offers not only a strong frontal attack on the defenders of relativity at any cost, but also a well-argued case for the objectivity of values in ethics, literature, and art
Recalling education by Hugh Mercer Curtler( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is the purpose of education? Though many now recognize the need for reform in our universities, few have taken the trouble to engage this crucial question. And it is even rarer to find an administrator or dean who can articulate a persuasive answer that withstands scrutiny." "In this critique, Hugh Mercer Curtler argues that the purpose of education - enabling students to achieve intellectual autonomy, and thus true freedom - has been forgotten. Furthermore, he argues that any renewal of American civil society depends on the renewal of American education, for only when our students learn to become truly autonomous can they act as free and responsible citizens."--Jacket
Ethical argument : critical thinking in ethics by Hugh Mercer Curtler( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designed to immediately engage students and other readers in philosophical reflection, the new edition of Ethical Argument: Critical Thinking in Ethics bridges the gap between ethical theory and practice. This brief introduction combines a discussion of ethical theory with fundamental elements of critical thinking - including informal fallacies and the basics of logic - and uses case studies and practical applications to illustrate concepts. Author Hugh Mercer Curtler presents a carefully formulated critique of ethical relativism, encouraging students to reason along with him and to question his argument at every point. This approach enables students to think systematically about ethical issues and to acquire basic skills in argumentation at the same time. They will learn how to bring principles to bear on ethical conflict, how to weigh pros and cons, how to recognize good ethical reasons, and how to distinguish sound argumentation from rationalization"--Jacket
