Value-- and what follows by Joel Kupperman( )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we know what is worth seeking or avoiding in life? Is there anything to know? If so, is it in some sense personal? This fresh and engaging work by noted philosopher Joel Kupperman addresses these questions as it examines the epistemology of value. Going further than previous works in determining what counts as evidence for a judgment of value, this book fills a substantial gap in the literature of ethical philosophy. Tackling difficult issues in an accessible manner, it will interest philosophers and students of ethics, epistemology, and social theory
Classic Asian philosophy : a guide to the essential texts by Joel Kupperman( )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 2,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a second, revised edition of Kupperman's introduction to Asian philosophy via its canonical texts. Ranging from the Upanishads to the Bhagavad Gita, through Confucius to Zen Buddhism, Kupperman walks students through the most important texts of Asian philosophy, conveying the vitality and appeal of the works, and explaining their philosophical roots." "This second edition includes revisions and updates throughout the text, clarifying where necessary, and a brand new chapter on al-Arabi's The Bezels of Wisdom, a classic of Islamic Sufism." "Classic Asian Philosophy is a highly useful aid to students in philosophy, religion, or Asian studies courses who are studying these fascinating bust complex texts, as well as laypersons or specialists in other areas who need assistance in understanding them."--Jacket
Character by Joel Kupperman( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We often speak of a person's character--good or bad, strong or weak--and think of it as a guide to how that person will behave in a given situation. Oddly, however, philosophers writing about ethics have had virtually nothing to say about the role of character in ethical behavior. What is character? How does it relate to having a self, or to the process of moral decision? Are we responsible for our characters? Character answers these questions, and goes on to examine the place of character in ethical philosophy. Both the Kantian and utilitarian traditions, Kupperman argues, have largely ignored the ways in which decisions are integrated over time, and instead provide a "snapshot" model of moral decision. Kupperman demonstrates the deficiencies of a number of classic and contemporary ethical theories that do not take account of the idea of character, and offers his own character-based theory. Along the way he touches on such subjects as personal identity, the importance of happiness, moral education, and the definition of a valuable life

Ethics and qualities of life by Joel Kupperman( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kupperman looks at what enters into ethical judgement and choice. Interpretation of a case and of what the options are is always a factor, as is a sense of the possible values at stake. Intuitions also enter in but are unreliable. A moral judgement is putatively part of a moral order in a society that any reasonable person would accept

Six myths about the good life : thinking about what has value by Joel Kupperman( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Six Myths about the Good Life focuses on the values that are worth aiming for in our lives, a topic central to what has been called Philosophy of Life. We all have ideas about the good life. We think that pleasure makes life better. We want to be happy. We think that achievements make a difference. There is something to all these ideas, but if taken simply and generally they all miss out on something. Six Myths about the Good Life explores what they miss and, in the process, gives a sense of what a good life can be."--Jacket
