Monotheism & Ethics

Historical and Contemporary Intersections among Judaism, Christianity and Islam

Series:

Edited by Y. Tzvi Langermann

The nexus between monotheism and ethics, especially in the forms professed by the three Abrahamic faiths, is the theme that binds together the studies in this volume. Fourteen leading academics from around the world discuss philosophical and theological connections, historical interactions, as well as responses to new and contemporary issues. Most, though not all of the essays, find a meaningful connection between monotheism and ethics; but none shy away from the problems involved.

The essays have all appeared recently in the Journal of Moral Philosophy, an internationally recognized leading philosophy journal.

Introduction This article is meant as a contribution to a larger project about the relations between religion and ethics. My concern here is to sketch out some approaches to these questions: assuming that what we call “religion” and “ethics” are in principle distinct from each other, what is

Speaking in Australia in 1984, Arne Naess told the audience: ‘I’m not much interested in ethics or morals. I’m interested in how we experience the world. Ethics follows from how we experience the world. If you experience the world so and so then you don’t kill’ (Naess quoted in Fox 1995: 219

exaggeration to say that this aesthetic appreciation plays an important role in motivating us to care about our companion animals, look after them, and share our lives with them. Aesthetic awareness is, I argue, a very important, if under-recognised, aspect of both animal and environmental ethics. For

Constructing Marxist Ethics

Critique, Normativity, Praxis

Series:

Edited by Michael J. Thompson

Does Marxism possess an ethical impulse? Is there a moral foundation that underpins the Marxist critique of capitalism and the vision for social progress? The essays collected in Constructing Marxist Ethics: Critique, Normativity, Praxis argue that there is such an ethical grounding for Marxist theory. The essays, each from different vantage points, construct what a Marxian ethics should look like: what kind of values should be at the heart of the Marxian enterprise.

Some of the concepts employed by Aristotle in his Nicomachean Ethics ( en ) have received a good deal of attention in recent years, especially that of happiness (εὐδαιµονία). So it is somewhat surprising how little discussion there has been of the nature and role of nobility (τὸ καλόν), given

Aaron Hughes thinks Islamic Studies is not well integrated into the study of religion. Matthew Day informs me that many readers of this journal believe that ethics is not integrated into the study of religion at all. Judging that one might as well fight for two lost causes as for one, I propose

This volume introduces the most important ideas in animal ethics and builds on a critical dialogue emerging at the intersection of animal rights, environmental ethics, and religious studies. In search of Consistency examines the work of influential scholars Tom Regan (animal rights), Peter Singer (utilitarian ethics), Andrew Linzey (theologian), and Paul Taylor (environmental ethics), and explores ethics and animals across six world religions (Indigenous faiths, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam). In Search of Consistency sheds light on 'the sanctity of life' by means of an intriguing moral theory, 'The Minimize Harm Maxim', rooted in the time-honoured moral ideals of impartiality and consistency. This volume questions what it means to be human and challenges our assumed place in the universe.
