Doing without Free Will: Spinoza and Contemporary Moral Problems introduces Spinoza into the current discussion of the possibility of morality without free will, as it was he who first accomplished such a task.

Current Debates in Contemporary Moral Problems
Author: Bruce N. Waller
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Longman
"Controversy over ethical issues is a familiar feature of our world and our society, and this book explores a number of those controversies by presenting opposing positions in the strongest possible form. Each topic is briefly introduced, and a few questions are posed; then a forceful, persuasive, and interesting arguement is offered for each side, each arguement framed directly by a leading advocate of that position. Following each debate is a brief note of some recent events relevant to that issue, and finally some sources for those wishing to explore the issue further." -- Preface.

A Personalist Perspective (Fourth Edition)
Author: Walter G. Jeffko
Publisher: Prometheus Books
Philosophy professor Walter G Jeffko explores a series of contemporary ethical problems from a personalistic perspective influenced by the Scottish philosopher John Macmurray (1891-1976). Professor 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. In the opening chapter Jeffko develops a personalistic anthropological and ethical theory within a framework that views the person a relational and rational agent, reason as the standard of value, and the principle of community as the supreme ethical standard.In successive chapters, this theory is applied to the issues of suicide, abortion, euthanasia (including assisted suicide), the death penalty, privacy (including private property and capitalism), the moral treatment of animals, and affirmative action. Jeffko connects ethics with logic in a lucid style that blends scholarship with readability. This is a fresh and absorbing examination of the key ethical dilemmas of our time.
