This volume contains selected essays in moral and political philosophy by Thomas Hurka. The essays address a wide variety of topics, from the well-rounded life and the value of playing games to proportionality in war and the ethics of nationalism. They also share a common aim: to illuminate the surprising richness and subtlety of our everyday moral thought by revealing its underlying structure, which they often do by representing that structure on graphs. More specifically, the essays all give what the first in the volume calls "structural" as against "foundational" analyses of moral views. Eschewing the grander ambition of grounding our ideas about, say, virtue or desert in claims that use different concepts and concern some other, allegedly more fundamental topic, they examine these ideas in their own right and with close attention to their details. As well as illuminating their individual topics, the essays illustrate the insights this structural method can yield.

About the Author:


Thomas Hurka is Jackman Distinguished Professor of Philosophical Studies, University of Toronto. He is the author of Perfectionism, Principles: Short Essays on Ethics, Virtue, Vice, and Value, and The Best Things in Life, as well as of many articles in moral and political philosophy. For two years he wrote a philosophy column for the Globe and Mail newspaper.

Review:


"One should hope and expect that intriguing puzzles emerge from a collection of essays like this. Perhaps the most important moral to be drawn from Drawing Morals is that Hurka's structural method and the insights he explores will continue to engender further philosophizing." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
