about this item

This book considers the theory and application if ethics for a multifaith society. Much ethics taught in the UK has been dominated by Christian ethics and their relation to secularism, and by the Enlightenment’s reaction against theology as a basis for ethical thought. In contrast to these perspectives, this book brings secular and theological ethics into dialogue, considering the degree to which secular ethics has common roots with theological perspectives from various traditions. It then assesses the application of ethical and theological principles in today’s multifaith society. Aiming to enhance ethical understanding and awareness across divergent worldviews, and to identify at what points divergence does occur, the author examines topics such as reason and ethics in theology, utilitarianism and deontology, the difference in approaches to interpreting religious scripture and religion in relation to global ethics.
