The Ethical Detective: Moral Philosophy and Detective Fiction

Lexington Books (2018)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This book works within the neo-Aristotelian ethical framework to make the case that moral philosophers ought to see detective fiction as a source of ethical insight and as a tool to spark the moral imagination. It also critiques contemporary moral philosophy and proposes what autonomy might look like if understood in neo-Aristotelian terms.
