Probably the most accessible and digestible textbook I've ever used in my school for a philosophical ethics class. Hospers makes clear and concise synopses for all sides of a multitude of ethical positions and arguments. I feel like he "gets it right" from living a hedonistic lifestyle all the way to the arguments for and against abortion.

Had to get for class --> Boring topics, but learned a lot. Class was boring too, but I mean... It had a lot to offer

Some of the commenters sound unhinged. Hospers' text was the most common' introduction to ethics' text a generation ago praised for its context and scholarship. Hospers is the only academic philosopher to run for President as the first gay candidate as well.

Many commenter attacks are based on Hospers' actually paying attention to Ayn Rand and the revived Aristotelians, calling it a creed. Rand is considered a key philosopher among Aristotelians trying to un-kidnap Aristotle from the Catholic Church. To call a survey a screed because it treats a philosopher who famously calls into question lazy, politicized on far-right/-left and ill-educated philosophers in academia is improper.

Rand's main point is the prime virtue is rationality and the importance of philosophy. Given the attacks on reason and free speech in many Humanities and Social Science Departments, Rand is understandably also attacked as a 'pseudo-philosopher.'

The book endeavors to provide a clear description and critical analysis of the main theories of ethics in the Western world from ancient times to the present: e.g. Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Mill, and some contemporary writers, and theories such as Epicureanism, Stoicism, utilitarianism, egoism, and other theories of ethics. The views of Ayn Rand are discussed, and distinguished from more traditional forms of egoism. There are also chapters on ethics and law, punishment, moral responsibility, justice (in relation to mercy and forgiveness), and the application of ethical principles to international relations.

I am a student using this book. I find John Hospers book to be one-sided and narrow minded. It is not a useful source to teach or learn with. I have yet to learn anything from this book. I took this course to further my knowledge in problems of ethics and reasonable solutions to these problems, but haven't gained anything from his writings. It's sad because we have such an intelligent group of students and a knowledgable professor and I feel as though our talents are wasted.
  • Celore
A pro-Ayn Rand screed, totally unsuitable as an introductory Ethics textbook. Hired at the last minute to replace another Ethics instructor, I was forced to teach from this book and consequently spent much of the semester apologizing for its biases and errors. Students deserve better than this grossly tendentious text.
