Plural values and conflicting values are often held to be conceptually problematic, threatening the very possibility of ethics, or at least of rational ethics. This book rejects this view. The author first demonstrates why it is so important to understand the issues raised by plural and conflicting values. This includes a full discussion of Aristotle's treatment of the issues. He then goes on to show that plurality and conflict are commonplace and generally unproblematic features of our everyday choice and action, and that they do allow for a sound and rational ethic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
subtle, complex and densely argued work * Political Studies *
Stocker's book is a subtle, imaginative, and intriguing piece, remarkable in the depth and breadth of human concerns that it addresses. It makes ethics come alive, and deserves careful study by anyone who cares about how to live well. * Australasian Journal of Philosophy *
