Reasonable self-esteem by Richard Keshen( )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 2,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fascinating look at the philosophy of self-esteem, Richard Keshen develops and defends the idea of reasonable self-esteem--a concept based on an ideal of reasonableness--and argues that individuals who think of themselves in terms of this paradigm will lead happier and more fulfilling lives. Keshen presents a set of guidelines for analysing self-esteem and examines various factors that influence our self-esteem, such as other people's evaluations, comparisons with others, social relationships, and inherent qualities. He asserts that self-esteem not founded on individual achievement leads to a continual search for external supports and is easily shaken when such supports are not found. A key element of Keshen's argument is the idea of egalitarian respect, and he shows how we can integrate this idea into our lives. Reasonable Self-Esteem demonstrates the attraction of a life in which reasonableness is a central commitment. It will appeal to those with an interest in philosophy, ethics, and moral psychology and is essential reading for those concerned with self-esteem."--
Ethics and humanity : themes from the philosophy of Jonathan Glover( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ethics and Humanity pays to tribute to Jonathan Glover, a pioneering figure whose thought and personal influence have had a significant impact on applied philosophy. Glover has made seminal contributions in topics that include genetic engineering, abortion, euthanasia, war, and moral responsibility. The essays collected here, written by some of the most distinguished contemporary moral philosophers, address topics to which Glover has contributed, with particular emphasis on problems of conflict discussed in his book Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century. There are also moving testaments to the influence Glover has had on colleagues, students, and friends. Glover himself contributes a series of replies that constitute an important addition to his published work."--Jacket
