Still More Amoral Moments book
Chapter 10 of Reason and Ethics concludes the book with a potpourri of other applications of desirism – the author’s recommended alternative to morality – to issues of the day gleaned from newspapers, periodicals, and books, professional and lay. Timely topics include designing rules of the road for self-driving cars, using new techniques to investigate biology, dealing with disrespectful students, adopting universal health care, aiding animals in the wild, and resisting Nazism from within. Throughout there are also more general lessons drawn about the authority of professional ethicists, the methodology of practical ethics, and the effect of language on our ethical outlook.
