Key Points


Book Rating/5 Cover

The Puzzle of Ethics, Peter Vardy - Clear explanations with examples. There's a chapter on Bentham and Mill (both considered Act Utilitarians according to Vardy) and a long chapter on post-Utilitarian perspectives.

AS/A2 Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics for OCR: Study Guides - A great book that gives an overview for every topic on the OCR syllabus. Does lack depth - do not buy if you aren't studying OCR!

Ethical Studies (Second Edition) - Great book by the man behind RS Web (and the shorter OCR revision guide above).

Moral Problems, Michael Palmer - The chapter on Utilitarianism is thorough and has interesting extracts from Dostoyevsky, Huxley and Machiavelli. There is a detailed discussion on the morality of punishment.
