Presenting ten diverse and original moral paradoxes, this cutting edge work of philosophical ethics makes a focused, concrete case for the centrality of paradoxes within morality.

  • Explores what these paradoxes can teach us about morality and the human condition
  • Considers a broad range of subjects, from familiar topics to rarely posed questions, among them Fortunate Misfortune , Beneficial Retirement and Preferring Not To Have Been Born
  • Asks whether the existence of moral paradox is a good or a bad thing
  • Presents analytic moral philosophy in a provocative, engaging and entertaining way; posing new questions, proposing possible solutions, and challenging the reader to wrestle with the paradoxes themselves
