📙 Moral Measures: An Introduction to Ethics West and East by James Tiles — epub download


Given that the synopsis of the book provided by the "Editorial Reviews" plus "Product Description" is fairly accurate, I will only point out that books on ethics with a comparative approach seem to be rather scarce, so, when I found this book, I decided it to give it a chance, in despite of not finding previous comments on it. I was surprised that no one else had made a comment before to this work, so I add my review, my rate being between 5 (content) and 3 (pleasure, sometimes falling to 2, sometimes raising to 4). Because of the author's style, the book is easy to follow and, although not very engaging, is not dry either. In any event I think that the professional philosopher and the educated layperson alike can savour it. I recommend it. Other interesting philosophical books I would recommend to read are the following: 1) A masterful work: Thomas McEvilley's "The Shape of Ancient Thought: Comparative Studies in Greek and Indian Philosophies". 2/2 bis)Politics at its best: Antony Black's "The West and Islam: Religion and Political Thought in World History" [his forthcoming book "A world history of Ancient Political Thought" also seems very interesting]. 3) A very well argued book for an extremely controversial subject: David Boonin's "A defense of abortion".
