Schopenhauer, Arthur, 1788-1860  
The Basis of Morality by Arthur Schopenhauer ; translated, with introduction and notes, by Arthur Brodrick Bullock.

Publisher: London : Swan Sonnenschein, 1903..
xxiv, 285 p. ; 20 cm. Translated from: Über das Fundament der Moral. "Persuasive and humane, this classic of philosophy offers Schopenhauer's fullest examination of ethical themes, articulating a descriptive form of ethics that contradicts the rationally based prescriptive theories. Starting with his polemic against Kant's ethics of duty, Schopenhauer argues that compassion forms the basis of morality, and he outlines a perspective on ethics in which passion and desire correspond to different moral characters, behaviors, and worldviews. He further defines his metaphysics of morals, employing Kant’s transcendental idealism to illustrate both the interconnectiveness of being and the affinity of his ethics to Eastern thought.

The Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle; translated. with an analysis and critical notes, by J.E.C. Welldon.

Publisher: London, Macmillan, 1912.
lxviii, 352 p.; 20 cm. "Aristotle's central concern in the Ethics is much the same as Plato's in the Republic: What objective grounds do we have for arguing that there is a way of evaluating moral life so as to counter the skepticism of the sophists, including the view of Thrasymachus that justice is merely the interest of the strong in society who create laws and moral systems to provide a conventional justification for their own self-interest?

Theory of Morality / Alan Donagan

Publisher: Chicago, The University of Chicago Press [1979, c1977].
xvi, 278 p., index, 21 cm. "The man value of this book seems to me to be that it shows the force of the Hebrew-Christian moral tradition in the hands of a creative philosopher. Throughout the book, one cannot but feel that a serious philosopher is trying to come to terms with his religious-moral background and to defend it against the prevailing secular utilitarian position which seems to dominate academic philosophy."—Bernard Gert, Journal of Medicine and Philosophy.
