Rational Morality - A Science of Right and Wrong

by Robert Johnson
     
 
How do we formulate a coherent moral code in a world without religion?

How can we show natural ideas like 'moral relativism' and 'egoism' to be irrational?

Moreover, how can we create a genuinely scientific and rational theory of morality which, so far, has evaded academics?

Rational Morality sets out to answer these questions by presenting a new form of ethics

Overview

How do we formulate a coherent moral code in a world without religion?

How can we show natural ideas like 'moral relativism' and 'egoism' to be irrational?

Moreover, how can we create a genuinely scientific and rational theory of morality which, so far, has evaded academics?

Rational Morality sets out to answer these questions by presenting a new form of ethics for the Brian Cox and Richard Dawkins generation.

In this passionate, thought-provoking and often radical thesis, Robert Johnson presents both a refreshing theory of morality based on science and a guide to the practical consequences of what a truly rational concept of morality involves.
