Where does it come from? Can we really hope to find any rational way of deciding how we ought to live? If we can, what would it be like, and how are we going to know when we have found it? This book is not a conventional reader in moral philosophy. To capture the essentials of what we know about the origins and nature of ethics, Peter Singer has drawn on anthropology, history, observations of non-human animals, the theory of evolution, game theory, and works of fiction, in addition to moral philosophy. By choosing some of the finest pieces of writing, old and new, in and about ethics, he conveys the intellectual excitement of the search for answers to basic questions about how we ought to live.

Ethics : a very short introduction / by Blackburn, Simon,1944-;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 133-136) and index."Our self-image as moral, well-behaved creatures is dogged by scepticism, relativism, hypocrisy, and nihilism, by the fear that in a Godless world science has unmasked us as creatures fated by our genes to be selfish and tribalistic, or competitive and aggressive. In this clear introduction to ethics Simon Blackburn tackles the major moral questions surrounding birth, death, happiness, desire and freedom, showing us how we should think about the meaning of life, and how we should mistrust the soundbite-sized absolutes that often dominate moral debates."--Front flap.

Everyday ethics : inspired solutions to real-life dilemmas / by Halberstam, Joshua,1946-;
Friends and foes -- The morality of romance (and a bit about sex) -- Creeps and Saints -- Talk -- Emotions -- Judging yourself -- Judging others -- Judging the issues -- Nine misleading moral cliches (and their cures) -- The value of your values.In an age when most of us spend more time thinking about what movie we'll see than about how we want to lead our lives, nothing could be more timely and helpful than Everyday Ethics. In this refreshingly original book, Joshua Halberstam shows us how to develop a moral imagination--and have fun while doing it. Halberstam demolishes the cliches of both religion and psychotherapy and entices us into looking at the small actions that make up the big picture of our character and values. Should we really refrain from making judgments? Should we let our conscience be our guide even if it urges us not to pay our taxes? Halberstam has something intriguing to say about these and many other issues. Witty and entertaining, Everyday Ethics is the moral equivalent of an aerobic dance session, as exhilarating as it is instructive.

Practical ethics / by Singer, Peter,1946-;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 297-321) and index.About ethics -- Equality and its implications -- Equality for animals? -- What's wrong with killing? -- Taking life : animals -- Taking life : the embryo and fetus -- Taking life : humans -- Rich and poor -- Climate change -- The environment -- Civil disobedience, violence and terrorism -- Why act morally?"For thirty years, Peter Singer's Practical Ethics has been the classic introduction to applied ethics. For this third edition, the author has revised and updated all the chapters and added a new chapter addressing climate change, one of the most important ethical challenges of our generation. Some of the questions discussed in this book concern our daily lives. Is it ethical to buy luxuries when others do not have enough to eat? Should we buy meat from intensively reared animals? Am I doing something wrong if my carbon footprint is above the global average? Other questions confront us as concerned citizens: equality and discrimination on the grounds of race or sex; abortion, the use of embryos for research and euthanasia; political violence and terrorism; and the preservation of our planet's environment. This book's lucid style and provocative argumentsmake it an ideal text for university courses and for anyone willing to think about how she or he ought to live"--Provided by publisher.

Space Ethics. by Green, Brian Patrick.;
Intro -- Contents -- 1 Why Space Ethics? -- 2 Questions of "Should" -- 3 Risk and Safety -- 4 Space and Human Health -- 5 The Dangers of Space Debris -- 6 Military, Dual-Use Activities, and International Relations in Space -- 7 Protecting Earth from Hazardous Asteroids and Other Extraterrestrial Dangers -- 8 Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life -- 9 Contamination, Planetary Protection, and Responsible Exploration -- 10 The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence -- 11 New Players in Space -- 12 Traveling to the Planets and the Stars -- 13 Building Your Martian Home -- 14 Planetary-Scale Interventions on Earth and Afar -- 15 Conclusion -- Acknowledgments -- Glossary/Keywords -- Bibliography -- Credits -- Index.Throughout history, humans have explored new places, making both good and bad moral decisions along the way. As humanity proceeds to explore space, it is important that we learn from the successes and not repeat the mistakes of the past. This book provides the first comprehensive introduction to ethics as it applies to space exploration and use. It examines real-world case studies that exemplify the ethical challenges we face in exploring beyond Earth: space debris, militarization in space, hazardous asteroids, planetary protection, the search for extraterrestrial life, commercial and private sector activities in space, space settlements, very long duration missions, and planetary-scale interventions. Major themes include human health, environmental concerns, safety and risk, governance and decision-making, and opportunities and challenges of multidisciplinary and international contexts. Ideal for classroom use and beyond, the book provides ways of thinking that will help students, academics and policymakers examine the full range of ethical decisions on questions related to space exploration. -- provided by publisher.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
