Ethics without God
Kai Nielsen In Ethics without God Professor Nielsen explores the relationship between morality and religion and concludes that morality cannot be based on religion, as Is often supposed. There is no need for despair in a Godless world. A secular, consequentialist ethic provides man with real purpose in life and with consistent principles on which to base his search for intrinsic goodness— for which happiness, selfconsciousness, and a sense of self-identity are the main candidates.
