en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 19 Jul 2013

Building on the strengths of the highly successful first edition, the Blackwell Guide to Ethical Theory has been thoroughly reorganized and revised, with the inclusion of an additional five new essays and major modification of nearly all of the remaining essays.
Ranging from moral realism to virtue ethics, this superb volume presents a complete state–of–the–art survey of ethical theory.
