Ethics: A Very Short Introduction

Second Edition

Simon Blackburn

Very Short Introductions

  • Discusses the major moral questions in key areas such as birth, death, desire, and the meaning of life
  • Explores different approaches to ethics and its foundations
  • Considers the risks of trusting the soundbite-sized absolutes that often dominate moral debates
  • Part of the Very Short Introductions series - over ten million copies sold worldwide

New to this Edition:

  • The new edition takes account of the changes in thinking about ethics wrought by fake news, post-truth worries, and the proliferation of bubble on the web
  • Includes a fully revised final chapter on Decency, Civility, and Trust in current times, focussing on the rise of greed, narcissism, and contempt for truth
  • Revises the discussion of evolutionary theory to reflect ongoing thought in this field
