The human world is alive with different sorts of goods - the multifarious things we all see as worth achieving or celebrating by our action and in our living. Timothy Chappell argues that we can't live well, still less think well about ethics, if we don't properly understand these issues. Venturing into new ground, he surveys the central topics in philosophy, providing an historical and philosophical map of the major themes. From utilitarianism, Kantianism, virtue ethics, personal identity, Parfitian reductionism, animals, abortion and euthanasia, to free will and the meaning of life itself, he takes us on an original and thought-provoking journey through ethics.
