Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE ETHICAL IMAGINATION by Margaret Somerville.

“ . . . at once a forward-looking and deeply conservative book . . . Her thoughtful treatise, guided by a respect for nature and a sense of the secular sacred, contains value even for those who . . . disagree fervently with many of its assumptions and conclusions.”
- This magazine

“Here is a voice speaking out intelligently for all of us.”
- Montreal Review of Books

Amazon.com reviews:

“Science and technology force us to ask some of the most challenging and unprecedented ethical questions in the world today. These issues encompass what it means to be human, how we relate to others and our world, and how we find meaning in life. How we can find a shared ethics for an interdependent world? In her 2006 CBC Massey Lectures, ethicist and McGill University professor Margaret Somerville tackles some of the most contentious issues of our times, and proposes a brilliant new kind of ethical language and thought to help us navigate them.”

“FIVE STARS!!! THE ETHICAL IMAGINATION is a well balanced attempt to look at an increasingly important subject. It is not a partisan writing, at which some may object: tough for them. Having traveled a lot, it makes very good sense to me, and it’s easy to read. I can see why Margeret Somerville is Chair for the faculty of Law, founding director of Center for Medicine, Ethics and Law in McGill University and has won prizes for Ethics in Science etc.”
