Common-Sense Ethics (Hardcover)
Originally published in 1921, this book makes philosophical ethics accessible to the non-philosopher and applies them to problems of everyday life. The author maintains that morality is the rationalization of the impulse to blame and emphases the importance of impulses. He illustrates how modern society conspires to suppress impulses and restrict their operation.
