Item Description...
The study of the nature of moral choices has been with us as far back as our historical memory and religious traditions can reach. We have inherited the foundations of that study from such great philosophers and pillars of Western culture as Plato, Aristotle, Saint Augustine and Saint Thomas Aquinas. This work draws on this rich tradition and provides a new and profound look at those aspects of human moral conduct which are both obvious and true.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Tool for the Introductory Ethics Class  Sep 10, 2007
Piotr Jaroszynski's little book is an excellent primer of classical ethical theory, and as such makes a great text for introductory coursework. It is a serious and sober book on a serious and sober subject. It is not for "dumbing down" ---there are no illustrations, comics, pop-up factoids. Just solid thinking about actions, intentions, consequences. It is difficult to find a work which presents an 'authentic' delivery of Aristotelian and Thomistic-Aristotelian ethical theory in a straightforward and graspable manner. I recommend this book without reservation.
Ethics: The Drama of The Moral Life  Jan 25, 2004
Matt Anderson's and Peter Jaroszynski's book THE DRAMA OF ETHICS is a book you will read and share. Ethics is the art and science of living well. Ethics gives us tools for finding the purpose of life, and applying it in action. It is the ultimate know-how. All other kinds of know-how are for small groups of people. The dentist knows how to use his drills, the policeman knows how to use his gun, the lawyer knows how to make a case stronger or weaker. Ethics is different. Every single one of us must develop the skill to live a good an upright life. We must have the intellectual tools to reason our way through moral dilemnas,
instead of relying always on others to tell us what is right or wrong.The authors show how true ethics is not based on some abstract and distant set of ideas, but it must be rooted in reality. Everything we do has a purpose, and ethics helps us find the ultimate purpose as our guide. Sometimes in our society we are so enchanted by the technical sweetness of what we are doing, we forget the moral implications of our actions. The authors follow the lines of the Lublin School of Philosophy, which strongly teaches that the good and happiness of real
human beings is more important than any technological, economic, or political goals. The present Pope, John Paul II, was a teacher at the Catholic University of Lublin, and strongly influenced the shape of this philosophy. The authors are also deeply rooted in more than two thousand years of philosophical tradition, but they also have the gift of presenting the best of this tradition in a way that everyone can understand.

The authors discuss sex, politics, and religion. They treat these matters with great care and diligence. They do not focus on what is in the news today, because that will be forgotten, but deal with general principles of public morality, war and peace, and the role of religion in public life. This book will still be timely and fresh centuries from now.The book presents the lost teaching of the four cardinal virtues: prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. These are the habits of a
man or woman who knows how to be effective in living well and doing what is right. They teach us about the virtues using many examples from history and literature. At a time when so many people say that values are relative, the four cardinal virtues are found in all cultures and societies as ideals of what it means to be good.This book may be read in a couple of afternoons, but it is also well suited as a teaching tool. There are study questions following each chapter. An earlier version of this book was approved for use in the high schools of Poland where it has gone through several editions. This version is very well suited to the needs of American educators. It is very concise and easy to read for people of all ages, but the seasoned philosopher will also find much food for thought. It is specially recommended for use in schools, and for parents who would like to take an active part in teaching their children what they need to know.
