Situation Ethics : The New Morality (2 Revised edition)

Part of the Library of Theological Ethics series
See all formats and editions

Igniting a firestorm of controversy upon its publication in 1966, Joseph Fletcher's Situation Ethics was hailed by many as a much-needed reformation of morality--and as an invitation to anarchy by others.

Proposing an ethic of loving concern, Fletcher suggests that certain acts--such as lying, premarital sex, adultery, or even murder--might be morally right, depending on the circumstances.

Hotly debated on television, in magazines and newspapers, in churches, and in the classroom, Fletcher's provocative thesis remains a powerful force in contemporary discussions of morality. The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically.

It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form.

Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors though reflection on classic works in the field.
