The Problem of Moral Demandingness: New Philosophical Essays

Chappell, Timothy ed. (2009). The Problem of Moral Demandingness: New Philosophical Essays. London: Palgrave Macmillan.



How much can morality demand of well-off Westerners as a response to the plight of the poor and starving in the rest of the world, or in response to environmental crises? Is it wrong to put your friends and family first? And what do the answers to these questions tell us about the nature of morality? This collection of eleven new essays from some of the world's leading moral philosophers brings the reader to the cutting edge of this contemporary ethical debate. With essays from Kantians, utilitarians, rights theorists, virtue ethicists, and others, a wide variety of major ethical approaches are represented by distinguished authors.
