9780198242284: Three Philosophical Moralists: Mill, Kant, and Sartre: An Introduction to Ethics

This book is an introduction to moral philosophy. Kerner defines ethics as the study of what makes life worth living and gives it meaning. Rather than cataloguing how various ethical theories bear on issues such as abortion, discrimination or nuclear deterrence, he poses the central question, is objective moral knowledge possible? Through an exacting study of his three chosen authors, Mill, Kant and Sartre, Kerner reaches the conclusion that Sartre has given the best answer to the question. In the sphere of morality there are no objective answers; there are only questions directed at our deep subjectivity. Kerner's previous works include "The Revolution in Ethical Theory".
