Does evolution inform the ancient debate regarding the roles that reason and instinct play in how we decide what to do? Evolution and Ethics offers an insightful analysis of four epistemological types. Ethics, the philosophical discipline concerned with what is morally good and bad and morally right and wrong. Its subject consists of fundamental issues of practical decision making, and its major concerns include the nature of ultimate value and the standards by which human actions can be morally evaluated.
