Rational man : a modern interpretation of Aristotelian ethics by Henry Babcock Veatch( Book )

41 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rational Man introduces readers to Aristotle's thoughts on ethics, interweaving questions and answers, reaching back to previous remarks and anticipating what is yet to come in the argument. Veatch uses literature, especially Jane Austen, to illustrate how vice is destructive and virtue is perfective of human flourishing and how ethics concern human character: Virtue and vice are quite real, and Veatch fortifies the reader to use both heart and intellect in absorbing the qualities of each. Rational Man offers a middle ground between existentialist and analytical ethics and anticipates the arguments of current virtue ethicists."--BOOK JACKET

For an ontology of morals : a critique of contemporary ethical theory by Henry Babcock Veatch( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book critiques contemporary trends in ethical theory, including the deontological tradition dating back to Kant, the teleological tradition of the utilitarians, the analytic movement, and the existentialist-phenomenologist movement. In refuting these trends, Veatch argues that moral and ethical distinctions cannot be rightly or adequately understood if they are regarded simply as matters of linguistic use but are grounded in the very being and nature of things
