Cahill addresses the ethics of sexuality, marriage, parenthood and family from a feminist Christian standpoint. She wants to reaffirm the traditional unity of sex, love and parenthood, not as an absolute norm, but a guiding framework. The book also develops the significance of New Testament models of community and of moral formation, to argue that the human values associated with sex and family should be embodied in a context of concern for society's poor and marginalized. Roman Catholicism receives special but not exclusive attention.

In the immediate future we are likely to witness significant developments in human genetic science. It is therefore of critical importance that Christian ethics engages with the genetics debate, since it affects not just the way we perceive ourselves and the natural world, but also has wider implications for our society. This book considers ethical issues arising out of specific practices in human genetics, including genetic screening, gene patenting, gene therapy, genetic counselling as well as feminist concerns. Genetics and Christian Ethics argues for a particular theo-ethical approach that derives from a modified version of virtue ethics, drawing particularly on a Thomistic understanding of the virtues, especially prudence or practical wisdom and justice. The book demonstrates that a theological voice is highly relevant to contested ethical debates about genetics.

In this book, Robin Gill argues that moral passion and rational ethical deliberation are not enemies, and that moral passion often lurks behind many apparently rational ethical commitments. He also contends that though moral passion is a key component of truly selfless moral action, without rational ethical deliberation it can also be extremely dangerous. Gill maintains that a reanalysis of moral passion is overdue. He inspects the gap between the 'purely rational' accounts of ethics provided by some moral philosophers and the normative positions that they espouse and/or the moral actions that they pursue. He also contends that Christian ethicists have not been adept at identifying their own implicit moral passion or at explaining why it is that doctrinal positions generate passionately held moral conclusions. Using a range of disciplines, including cognitive science and moral psychology, alongside the more usual disciplines of moral philosophy and religious ethics, Gill also makes links with moral passion in other world faith traditions.

Altruism And Christian Ethics

Separated from its anchorage in religion, ethics has followed the social sciences in seeing human beings as fundamentally characterised by self-interest, so that altruism is either naively idealistic or arrogantly self-sufficient. Colin Grant contends that, as a modern secular concept, altruism is a parody on the self-giving love of Christianity, so that its dismissal represents a social levelling that loses the depths that theology makes intelligible and religion makes possible. The Christian affirmation is that God is characterised by self-giving love (agape), then expected of Christians. Lacking this theological background, the focus on self-interest in sociobiology and economics, and on human realism in the political focus of John Rawls or the feminist sociability of Carol Gilligan, finds altruism naive or a dangerous distraction from real possibilities of mutual support. This book argues that to dispense with altruism is to dispense with God and with the divine transformation of human possibilities.

Self love is an inescapable problem for ethics, yet much of contemporary ethics is reluctant to offer any normative moral anthropologies. Instead, secular ethics and contemporary culture promote a norm of self-realization which is subjective and uncritical. Christian ethics also fails to address this problem directly, because it tends to investigate self love within the context of conflicts between the self's interests and those of her neighbors. Self Love and Christian Ethics argues for right self love as the solution of proper self-relation that intersects with love for God and love for neighbor. Darlene Fozard Weaver explains that right self love entails a true self-understanding that is embodied in the person's concrete acts and relations. In making this argument, she calls upon ethicists to revisit ontological accounts of the self and to devote more attention to particular moral acts.

Wir alle haben schon gespendet. Doch geht es uns dabei wirklich um die Hilfe für andere? Oder wollen wir eher unser Gewissen beruhigen, ein wohliges Gefühl verspüren oder spendabel wirken? Millionäre lassen Kunstmuseen errichten, statt Verhungernden zu helfen, und Normalbürger geben Beträge, die nicht einmal die Bearbeitungsgebühren decken. Wer dagegen so viel Gutes wie möglich tun will, sollte besser auf seinen Verstand hören als auf seinen Bauch. Diese simple Idee ist Ausgangspunkt einer neuen sozialen Bewegung – des effektiven Altruismus. Peter Singer, einer ihrer Gründerväter, zeigt in seinem Buch, wie effektives Spenden möglich und warum es richtig ist. Gestützt auf harte Fakten und neue wissenschaftliche Methoden, können wir heute in vielen Fällen sagen, welcher gute Zweck der bessere ist. Gleiches gilt für die Wahl der Mittel: Auch hier orientieren sich effektive Altruisten daran, was den größten Nutzen verspricht. Um mehr spenden zu können, beschränken sich manche von ihnen auf das Allernötigste, andere geben gar freiwillig einen Teil ihrer selbst, etwa eine Niere. Effektive Altruisten sind aber weder Heilige noch Masochisten: Man darf sie sich als glückliche Menschen vorstellen. Singers Buch ist ein Aufruf zu einem in doppelter Hinsicht gelungenen Leben: Indem man für andere das Bestmögliche tut, gibt man dem eigenen Leben Sinn.
