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 an understanding central to the future hopes of mankind, rather than abandoning the belief altogether. This is a concise humane account of some fundamental questions of social existence.

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.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The book is a contribution to the study of values, as they affect both our personal and our public life. It defends the view that values are necessarily universal, on the ground that that is a condition of their intelligibility. It does, however, reject most common conceptions of universality, like those embodied in the writings on human rights. It aims to reconcile the universality of value with (a) the social dependence of value and (b) the centrality to our life of deep attachments to people and countries alike. Building from there, the book explores personal love, the value of life, and the fundamental duty of respect for people. Seller Inventory # APC9780521000222
