Foundations of ethics : an anthology
Part of the Blackwell Philosophy Anthologies series
"Foundations of Ethics" is a collection of seminal articles in metaethics. Organized into two parts, the first section investigates issues in the ontology of morality, such as whether there are objective moral standards.
The second section considers related topics, such as whether moral considerations are essentially reason-giving, the nature of moral knowledge, and the differences between ethics and natural science.
Designed for students of ethical theory, this volume provides an extensive selection of primary sources and corresponding expert commentary.
