How can we know what is right and wrong? Does ethical objectivity require God? Why should I be moral? Whatever Happened to Good and Evil? explores such questions and ultimately defends the objectivity of ethics. Writing in a clear and lively style and employing many examples to illustrate theoretical arguments, Russ Shafer-Landau identifies the many weaknesses in contemporary moral skepticism and devotes considerable attention to presenting, and critiquing, the most difficult objections to his view. Engaging and accessible, it is the first introduction to meta-ethics written especially for students and general readers with no philosophical background.
