Massimo Pigliucci on ethics

October 17, 2011

Philosopher, friend, and Center for Inquiry speaker Massimo Pigliucci recently penned a series of seven essays about ethics on his blog Rationally Speaking. In these seven essays, Pigliucci discusses everything from meta-ethics (is there right and wrong?) to ethical theories (what is right and wrong?) that are person-focused (deontology, virtue ethics) to ones that are more societal or political in nature (consequentialism, contractarianism, egalitarianism). 

Here is a list of the entries and their subject. I highly recommend them as reading for anyone interested in exploring ethics.
