Description

In a democracy, should everyone – absolutely everyone – get a vote? Does it really matter if tigers become extinct? Why does murder carry a heavier penalty than attempted murder? If you don't like the socks your grandma gives you for Christmas, should you tell her so?

101 Dilemmas for the Armchair Philosopher is packed with problems, puzzles, quizzes and questions, as well as ethical ideas and insights from history's greatest philosophers.

This thought-provoking, interactive and entertaining introduction to ethics will bring you face to face with some tough moral choices. It presents you with 101 imaginative scenarios – sometimes amusing, sometimes tragic and sometimes uncomfortably realistic – which will force you to re-examine your most cherished assumptions about right and wrong.
