Morality, Mortality: Volume Ii: Rights, Duties, and Status

OUP Usa (1996)
This volume continues the examination of issues of life and death which F.M. Kamm began in Morality, Mortality, Volume I . Kamm continues her development of a non-consequentialist ethical theory and its application to practical ethical problems. She looks at the distinction between killing and letting die, and between intending and foreseeing, and also at the concepts of rights, prerogatives, and supererogation. She shows that a sophisticated non-consequentialist theory can be modelled which copes convincingly with practical ethical issues, and throws considerable light on some of the key distinctions and concepts of ethical discourse
