Encyclopedia of ethics by Lawrence C Becker( Book )

39 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 1,663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A reference work in philosophy addressed to an audience of scholars and university students but fully accessible to others with a serious interest in the field. Two hundred sixty-seven writers from around the world have contributed, either as editors or authors, to the 435 signed articles on topics in meta-ethics, ethical theory, perennial moral problems, and political, social, and legal theory. There are survey articles on trends and eras; summaries of leading concepts, principles, and theoretical problems; and biographical entries for philosophers whose place in the history of ethics is secure, as well as a few contemporaries whose seniority and eminence make their inclusion appropriate. Each article has a bibliography, and the usual cross-references are supplemented with an analytical index of the text of the articles and an index of authors cited in the bibliographies. A lovely job. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

A new stoicism by Lawrence C Becker( Book )

27 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What would stoic ethics be like today if stoicism had survived as a systematic approach to ethical theory, if it had coped successfully with the challenges of modern philosophy and experimental science? A New Stoicism proposes an answer to that question, offered from within the stoic tradition but without the metaphysical and psychological assumptions that modern philosophy and science have abandoned. Lawrence Becker argues that a secular version of the stoic ethical project, based on contemporary cosmology and developmental psychology, provides the basis for a sophisticated form of ethical na

On justifying moral judgements by Lawrence C Becker( Book )

6 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much discussion of morality presupposes that moral judgments are always, at bottom, arbitrary. Moral scepticism, or at least moral relativism, has become common currency among the liberally educated. This remains the case even while political crises become intractable, and it is increasingly apparent that the scope of public policy formulated with no reference to moral justification is extremely limited. The thesis of On Justifying Moral Judgments insists, on the contrary, that rigorous justifications are possible for moral judgments. Crucially, Becker argues for the coordination of the three m

Reciprocity (Routledge Revivals) by Lawrence C Becker( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The tendency to reciprocate - to return good for good and evil for evil - is a potent force in human life, and the concept of reciprocity is closely connected to fundamental notions of 'justice', 'obligation' or 'duty', 'gratitude' and 'equality'. In Reciprocity , first published in 1986, Lawrence Becker presents a sustained argument about reciprocity, beginning with the strategy for developing a moral theory of the virtues. He considers the concept of reciprocity in detail, contending that it is a basic virtue that provides the basis for parental authority, obligations
