The Art of Dealing with Serious Questions

In this clear and accessible book, Gernot Böhme places
philosophical ethics in the context of our individual and social
lives. Arguing against the conception of ethics as a body of
knowledge, Böhme defines morality as a matter of
?serious questions'. In the case of an individual, a serious
question is one that determines that person's mode of living. In
the case of society, a serious question is one that shapes our
social norms.

In Ethics in Context, Böhme explores the key areas
of moral living and moral discourse. He examines some of the urgent
issues affecting society today, such as the moral implications of
reproductive technology, man's mastery over nature and the right of
citizenship.


This book is a lucid and engaging guide to ethics, which will be
of great interest to students of philosophy and, indeed, to all
those interested in the subject.
