What is right? What is wrong? How do we decide? To a remarkable extent, our decision-making is determined by the origins of the ethical ideas that we employ and the history of their development. A Short History of Ethics is widely acknowledged as the perfect introduction to the subject, presenting in concise form an insightful yet exceptionally complete history of moral philosophy in the west from the Greeks to contemporary times. In clear and readable prose Alasdair MacIntyre, one of the finest living philosophers, leads the reader towards a greater understanding of what lies behind our ethical decisions.
