Item Description...

A fascinating study of moral languages and their discontents, "Ethics after Babel" explains the links that connect contemporary moral philosophy, religious ethics, and political thought in clear, cogent, even conversational prose. Princeton's paperback edition of this award-winning book includes a new postscript by the author that responds to the book's noted critics, Stanley Hauerwas and the late Alan Donagan. In answering his critics, Jeffrey Stout clarifies the book's arguments and offers fresh reasons for resisting despair over the prospects of democratic discourse.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
ethics in the real world  Oct 31, 2003
Stout's book is a good discussion of how to choose the best among many choices in an increasingly relativistic world. I have used it to teach undergraduates comparative ethics and most of them found it useful and interesting, though not an easy read. It would be best suited to an upper level undergrad class and/or the lay reader who might have some background in ethical theory.

By far the most important idea in the book (to my mind) is that of the ethical bricolleur - the person who uses all at his/her disposal to develop a cogent ethic for his/her life in the context of their communities.

If you are looking for simple answers in ethics, this is not your text, but if you want a coherent, well reasoned discussion of the moral 'grey areas' we all need to traverse, Stout is a good choice.
