    Though ‘evil’ is often used loosely as merely the generic opposite of ‘morally good’, used precisely it is the worst possible term of opprobrium available. In this essay it is taken as applying primarily to persons, secondarily to conduct; evil deeds must flow from the volition to do something evil. An evil action is one so horrendously bad that no ordinary decent human being can conceive of doing it, and an evil person is one who knowingly wills or orders such (...)

    The Golden Rule.Marcus G. Singer - 1963 - Philosophy 38 (146):293 - 314.
    The Golden Rule has received remarkably little philosophical discussion. No book has ever been written on it, and articles devoted to it have been exceedingly few, and usually not very searching. It is usually mentioned, where it is mentioned at all, only in passing, and most of these passing remarks have either been false, trite, or misleading, though some of them, as we shall see, have certainly been interesting enough. Considering its obvious importance and its almost universal acceptance, this dearth (...)

    Justice, Theory, and a Theory of Justice.Marcus G. Singer - 1977 - Philosophy of Science 44 (4):594-618.
    John Rawls's A Theory of Justice was published in December 1971 and has already established itself as a landmark. No other philosophical work, in our time or before, has, to my knowledge, excited so much attention in so short a time and in such varied circles. Clearly the book answers to a set of needs that have just recently surfaced, and it was published at just the right time to benefit from changing directions in philosophy and other areas of intellectual (...)

    Moral Issues and Social Problems: The Moral Relevance of Moral Philosophy: Marcus G. Singer.Marcus G. Singer - 1985 - Philosophy 60 (231):5-26.
    At the beginning of one of his inimitable discourses William James once said, ‘I am only a philosopher, and there is only one thing that a philosopher can be relied on to do, and that is, to contradict other philosophers’. 1 In his succeeding discourse James himself departed from this theme. And so shall I. I shall not be contradicting other philosophers—at least not very often. What I aim to do is to take a fresh look at one of the (...)

    The Many Methods of Sidgwick’s Ethics.Marcus G. Singer - 1974 - The Monist 58 (3):420-448.
    The very title of Sidgwick’s great work is fascinating: the methods of ethics. We hear much—and persons a hundred years ago heard much—of the methods of science. But we hear very little of the methods of ethics. Is ethics a science? No, and Sidgwick never thought that it was. But he did think that the methods, or something of the spirit, of scientific investigation could be imported into ethical studies, with results which, though they would not necessarily be dramatic and (...)

    Two American Philosophers: Morris Cohen and Arthur Murphy: Marcus G. Singer.Marcus G. Singer - 1985 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 19:295-329.
    It may be thought odd that these two philosophers should have been selected for discussion together. They had no special connection with each other. They were not personally close. They did not teach or write in the same place. Nor were their personalities at all similar. None the less there are similarities of thought and perspective that make the conjunction illuminating. It may be thought even odder that these two philosophers should have been selected for discussion at all. After all, (...)

    Institutional Ethics*: Marcus G. Singer.Marcus G. Singer - 1993 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 35:223-245.
    My title may generate some perplexity. It is certainly not a familiar one. So I should make it plain at the outset that I shall not be talking about the ethics of organizations or associations or groups. I want to direct attention to the ethical and valuational questionsassociated with social institutions, and I distinguish institutions from associations and organizations. One question I am aiming at is whether the principles and standards applicable to moral judgments of actions and of persons—call them (...)

    The Teaching of Introductory Ethics.Marcus G. Singer - 1974 - The Monist 58 (4):616-629.
    There are a number of different ways of teaching ethics, and there is ample room for a number of different ways of teaching ethics. I am sure that there is no one way that is right, but I am also sure that there are a number of ways, some of them in widespread use, that are wrong. It is wrong, for example, to teach ethics by simply presenting and discussing a number of ethical theories, in isolation from the actual or (...)

    Value Judgments: Marcus G. Singer.Marcus G. Singer - 1988 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 24:145-190.
    A person's values are what that person regards as or thinks important; a society's values are what that society regards as important. A society's values are expressed in laws and legislatively enacted policies, in its mores, social habits, and positive morality. Any body's values—an individual person's or a society's—are subject to change, and in our time especially. An individual manifests his or her values in expressions of approval or disapproval, of admiration or disdain, by seeking or avoidance behaviour, and by (...)
