The Moral Sense

PDF EBook by James Q. Wilson

EBook Description

I normally wouldn't give a book that is this slow such a high rating. The Moral Sense PDF EBook Some of the chapters are longer than they need to be. Despite that, Wilson's argument is so interesting that it is worth struggling through some rather difficult writing to try to understand it.

Wilson is making a very conservative argument that argues that everyone is born with an innate moral sense, but that the family is key to socializing children to express that basic human nature. He uses extensive reference materials to back up his argument. In the end, I wasn't convinced that his thesis was correct, but he made me consider possibilities and arguments that I had not contemplated in the past. Some of his arguments about women were clearly sexist, and he didn't back it up in a way that made it seem like anything more than anti- PDFfeminist rhetoric. Overall, however, some of what he said did make sense. The book made me think, which a decent philosophical essay ought to do.

If you are willing to read a book you might not agree with, and you are interested in philosophy/morality, this book is worth the effort.
