Contemporary moral philosophers have produced an enormous amount of rich and varied published work on virtually all the issues falling within the scope of ethics and moral philosophy. Morality and the Good Life is a comprehensive survey of contemporary ethical theory, which collects thirty-four selections on morality, and the theory of value.

It is said that ‘money may not be the first thing in life but every thing else is a distant second’. Does it mean that money ‘is’ in fact the first thing in life?  On the contrary it explains the fundamental inadequacy of money – that it cannot solve all problems.  Why are we averse to mentioning money as the best thing in life? Why this pejorative attitude towards money?  Is it misdirected ostentation of   virtuousness and rectitude or is it for the fear of being branded philistine or an upstart?  No – it is not so. It is in fact to warn against the fundamental inadequacy of money to solve all our problems.

Nonsense is not meaningless, though some poets seem to talk about nonsense but still their work carries some meaning in itself. For, there are two ways of dealing with nonsense in this world. One way is to put nonsense in the right place, as when people put nonsense into nursery rhymes. The other is to put nonsense in the wrong place; as when they put it into educational addresses, psychological criticisms, and complaints against nursery rhymes or other normal amusements of mankind (Chesterton, 1921).

Jean Paul Sartre's book Anti-Semite and Jew is written in 1946 from a non-Jewish point of view, it successfully examines the motivations from which anti-Semitism arises. Concrete examples in Sartre's work are rare, and when they're provided they generally refer to contemporary France. This is not a deficiency, however, as one's own imagination can conjure up such examples - both in history and in the present day (from Adolf Hitler to Ernst Zundel) - to whom the theory applies strikingly well, making this small volume applicable to people and events fifty years after its first publication. Sartre creates a prototype that can help us to understand the mind of the anti-Semite before, during, and after the rise of Hitler.


Theists have always responded quite variously to the questions regarding the nature and attributes of universe and God. They have encountered criticism from those who deny the ability of reason beyond ordinary experience, those who reject the role of reason in favor of revelation alone, and those who accept the rational method but reject the theistic conclusions. Nevertheless, theists continue to use rational argument to support their contentions that a God exists in the universe who is creative and sustaining of the world and toward whom the world is directed in a purposeful manner.
