Godless Morality: Keeping Religion Out of Ethics

Front Cover
Canongate, 2004 - Ethics - 176 pages
1 Review
The use of God in moral debate is so problematic as to be almost worthless. We can argue with one another as to whether this or that alleged claim genuinely emanated from God, but surely it is better to leave God out of the argument and find strong human reasons for supporting the systems we advocate. We need a sensible and practical approach that will help us pick our way through the moral maze that confronts us in the pluralistic society we live in. "Godless Morality" offers exactly this--a human-centered justification for contemporary morality.
