A Companion to Ethics Summary é 104 Pecific ethical issues and the nature of ethics itself The book can be read straight through from beginning to end; yet the inclusion of a multi layered index coupled with a descriptive outline of conten. This is a useful book with a wide ranging set of essays on a very broad set of ethical topics In fact the broadness of the book s contents is both a strength and weakness The strength is that you will find angles on aspects of ethics you will struggle to find in many ethical anthologies The weakness is that by being uite so broad it does lack something in terms of depth The essays are generally of a high standard although I found a couple less well written and the standard is not as high as Singer s other really excellent anthology Applied Ethics So in the end it depends what you want if you really want an anthology that covers all aspects of ethics then this is probably as close as you will get to such a thing in a single volume If you are looking for an anthology with really deep and thorough essays on certain aspects then this is probably less strong I am pleased I bought it and it has certainly introduced me to some streams of ethical thinking I was less familar with However in a couple of core areas the essays are a less profound than I hoped for

A Companion to Ethics Summary é 104 In this volume some of today's most distinguished philosophers survey the whole field of ethics from its origins through the great ethical traditions to theories of how we ought to live arguments about s. Singer takes a different approach with this book and instead of culling from existing literature he calls for essays The result is an eclectic mix of essays that exhibit a wide range of contemporary s takes on some of the classic and current problems that philosophers wrestle with or theorize about It consists of some fifty original essays These essays deal with the origins of ethics with the great ethical traditions with theories about how we ought to live with arguments about specific ethical issues and with the nature of ethics itself As Singer puts it a uick summary might go like this in the first part we see how little we know about the origins of ethics how ethics in small scale societies takes forms very different from those it takes in our own and how the most ancient ethical writings already reflect a variety of views about how life is to be lived Then the great ethical traditions are put on display and we find divergence of opinion not only between the different traditions but within each tradition itself The history of Western philosophical ethics shows how from the earliest Greek thinkers to the present day old philosophical positions have resurfaced at intervals and old battles have had to be fought out all over again in modern terms When in Part IV the volume moves from the past to the present we are presented with many theories of how we ought to live and about the nature of ethics all plausible sometimes disagreeing with other approachesThe many voices makes this a valuable collection in that the method provides a level of over all detachment that a single author tackling multiple philosophies might find hard to achieve Here each of the authors are presumably scholars who wanted to make a distinct point and Singer is okay with accepting that the book might not have any coherence beyond being a companion to the many schools but the reader also develops a sense of convergence of ideas as the book moves from the past to the present and from uestions to possible solutions What is striking at this point is the unexpected extent to which writers who had started from uite different places all seemed to be heading in the same direction That is the strength of the book It lays out the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle but leaves it to the reader to divine if there is an overarching outline connecting them And a book on philosophy should always endeavor to let that thrill be the reader s
