Item description for The Ethics of Killing: Problems at the Margins of Life by Jeff McMahan...

This magisterial work is the first comprehensive study of the ethics of killing, where the moral status of the individual killed is uncertain. Drawing on philosophical notions of personal identity and the immorality of killing, McMahan looks carefully at a host of practical issues, including abortion, infanticide, the killing of animals, assisted suicide, and euthanasia.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ethics of Killing: Problems at the Margins of Life?

Fascism reincarnated  Nov 19, 2007
Used this text for contemporary ethics class.
It is obviously methodologically naturalistic work.
It throws away any theistic views that elevate human being above animals, and destroys notion of 'sanctity of human life'.
generally speaking, Fascism reincarnated, period.
While it does not build Fascism, it paves the road for it to come, by destroying 'old' values and introducing 'new' ones.
If you like reading Peter Singer, you'll like this book.
If not, then you'll join me in criticism.

See, I predicted the future. :D
Most reviews will be diabolically opposed.
