[Amazon.ca] Making Moral Judgments: Psychological Perspectives on Morality, Et... free on kindle

Making Moral Judgments: Psychological Perspectives on Morality, Et... was 69.85 seems high but free on kindle not kindle unlimited

This fascinating new book examines diversity in moral judgements, drawing on recent work in social, personality, and evolutionary psychology, reviewing the factors that influence the moral judgments people make.


Why do reasonable people so often disagree when drawing distinctions between what is morally right and wrong? Even when individuals agree in their moral pronouncements, they may employ different standards, different comparative processes, or entirely disparate criteria in their judgments. Examining the sources of this variety, the author expertly explores morality using ethics position theory, alongside other theoretical perspectives in moral psychology, and shows how it can relate to contemporary social issues from abortion to premarital sex to human rights. Also featuring a chapter on applied contexts, using the theory of ethics positions to gain insights into the moral choices and actions of individuals, groups, and organizations in educational, research, political, medical, and business settings, the book offers answers that apply across individuals, communities, and cultures.


Investigating the relationship between people’s personal moral philosophies and their ethical thoughts, emotions, and actions, this is fascinating reading for students and academics from psychology and philosophy and anyone interested in morality and ethics.

It is not amazon.ca but from amazon.com. Not sure if you need to enter credit card details if you are new to amazon us.

Would suggest OP to add eBook in the header

Anyone accepting this offer is paying the requested price.
If people were exploiting a loophole or software bug to acquire the book without paying, that would be immoral.

NB
I think some people down vote free eBooks because it can be a bit of a scam: offer the book for free so people "buy" it and give positive reviews, so when the price goes back up, others are more likely to buy it (since it has lots of sales and reviews).

Or it can be a way for less legitimate authors to get people to read their sketchy opinions.

Not sure if either is the case here because I don't care enough to research, but that might be why some people are downvoting something "free".

That could be the author's trick. It's called "Making Moral Judgments", given away for free. You'll read it, then feel immoral about getting it for free, then pay $148 for the hardcover.

Of course, they planned this nefarious plan all along while they were writing it. :twisted:

If you're looking for a digestible guide to an ethical functional life as a young man (more for the 20-somethings out there), then:

Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life is a good start.

https://www.amazon.ca/12-Rules-Life-Ant ... 01FPGY5T0/

Free with Audible trial.

If you set aside the political figure, the advise within this text is sound. The greatest criticism of the book might be that it seems like common sense, but common sense is not terribly common.

Side note: The book has a 4.7 / 5.0 with 83% 5-Stars, but targeted vote manipulation has pushed an odious review right to the top. Keep an open mind, as I say, the most salient criticism from older adults is that this advice is obvious in parts.

If I end up wanting the hardcover I will just “borrow” it from my local library and not bring it back.

Separate the man from the message. He's a strange one, yes.

His target audience is 20-something men who are 'lost', most of us are 30-something or older men, already established and oriented in our lives. If you require proof in my case, I'll PM you my dad bod.
