Description
Are you authoritarian, or libertarian? Are we morally obliged to end the world? And just what's wrong with eating your cat? The cofounder of The Philosopher's Magazine challenges readers to examine these and many other philosophical questions with this illustrated collection of classic and modern problems and paradoxes intended to test your preconceptions. Jeremy Stangroom offers contemporary versions of famous dilemmas that explore everything from the morality of suicide to the ethics of retribution. He then delves into the background of each conundrum in detail and helps you discover what your responses reveal about yourself.

"Stangroom has been one of the most entertaining and diligent of a new breed of interpreters of philosophy for a wider audience.... I would recommend [this book] to anyone who needs a primer in moral thought."Times Higher Education (London)
