Editorial Reviews

Review

'This engaging book explores the central issues surrounding value in an interesting and thought-provoking manner and is well worth reading.' Philosophical Writings

Book Description

Joseph Raz is one of the world's leading philosophers of law, and in his Seeley Lectures he reflects critically on one of the central tenets of ethical thought, the view that values are universal. He concludes that we should try to understand what is and what is not entailed by the universality of values, with such a proper understanding central to the future hopes of mankind, rather than abandoning the belief altogether. This is a concise, pithy and attractively humane account of some fundamental questions of social existence.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jean Baillargeon on October 25, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a book I very much enjoyed reading. The style of Raz's earlier work strikes me as rather laborious, but this book is well written. Raz carefully explores questions related to the value of life, and does so with imagination and humanity. There are also responses to the ideas and views of other philosophers, such as T. Nagel and F. Kamm. Highly recommended.
