198 editions published between 1874 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This renowned treatise on ethics was highly influential in ethical theory in Sidgwick's time. After discussing the history of ethics in full, he goes on to outline his theory that there are three methods of ethics: egoistic hedonism (what will ultimately be best for one), intuitionism (what an immediate sense morality tells one to do), and utilitarianism (what will be best for everyone). Sidgwick determines how these thoughts work together

One of the most influential of the Victorian philosophers, Henry Sidgwick (1838-1900) also made important contributions to fields such as economics, political theory, and classics. A proponent of the utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill, which he analysed in his classic work The Methods of Ethics (1874; also reissued in this series), he later turned to the practical side of politics in this work, published in 1891. His aim was to have a 'rational discussion of political questions in modern states', and he offers

Essays on ethics and method by Henry Sidgwick( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Essays on Ethics and Method is a selection of the shorter writings of the great nineteenth-century moral philosopher Henry Sidgwick. Sidgwick's monumental work The Methods of Ethics is a classic of philosophy; this new volume is a complement to it. These essays develop further Sidgwick's ethical ideas, respond to criticism of the Methods, and discuss rival theories. Other aspects of Sidgwick's thought are also illuminated, in particular his interests in method, verification, and proof. The essays show Sidgwick to be a forerunner of twentieth-century analytical philosophy: they illustrate his emphasis on common sense and ordinary language, and exemplify not only his care, clarity, and precision, but also the wit and humour that are not prominent in his longer works. Marcus Singer provides a substantial editorial introduction to Sidgwick and his intellectual context. The volume will be a rich resource for anyone interested in moral philosophy or the development of modern analytical philosophy."--Jacket
