Revisioning Environmental Ethics
Revisioning Environmental Ethics (July 1990)

Moral Analysis
Moral Analysis (April 1988)
Foundations, Guides, and Applications
Louis G. Lombardi - Author

"I would buy this book. All too often philosophers present Kantian and Millian theories at such a level of abstraction that they seem to be totally unrelated to the ethical experience of any human being we know. We need more books that help us make moral decisions, that describe to us the stages we go through in coming to such decisions. There is no other book like this on the market." -- Rosemary Tong, Williams College

This is an introduc...(Read More)
 
 
Faith and the Professions

The ethics of virtue have been neglected.

The ethical argument in Faith and the Profession...(Read More)

Omnipotence and other Theological Mistakes (June 1984)

This book presents Hartshorne's philosophical theology briefly, simply, and vividly.

"Hartshorne speaks with not just conviction, but passion. He cares, and that caring comes through loud and clear.
