Summary
"Contemporary Ethical Issues explores a series of contemporary moral-problems from a personalistic perspective influenced by the Scottish philosopher John Macmurray (1891-1976). In many books, articles, and pamphlets spanning fifty years, most notably his Gifford Lectures, "The Form of the Personal," Macmurray developed a robust personalism that emphasizes the primacy of persons as rational agents whose self-realization is achieved in community. Walter G. Jeffko utilizes key elements of Macmurray's thought in developing his own viewpoint, and he relates Macmurray's ideas to those of a wide variety of important philosophers, ethicists, and behavioral scientists."--Jacket
