Taking People Seriously
Taking People Seriously gives students a fresh and original answer to basic philosophical questions about human conduct. It specifically argues against both ethical egoism and ethical relativism, the two most prevalent theories students hold when entering college. While the answer provided in the text is simple, putting it into practice requires skills of subtle discernment and nuance, and it explains why anybody and everybody would benefit from taking other people seriously.
Taking People Seriously is designed for introductory or survey courses in normative ethics.
