Alexander Skutch's Moral Foundations, offered by Axios Press in English for the first time, embodies Skutch's lifelong inquiry into the structure of moral relations and the sources of morality. Skutch—world famous naturalist, ornithologist, philosopher and author of over 30 books—believed that in order to build a satisfying moral edifice we need to establish an ample and firm foundation. Moral Foundations brilliantly lays out for the reader the myriad ways in which we are products of "harmonization," a process that unites the crude elements of the world in harmonious patterns. Not only does life depend on the harmonious integration of body and mind, it demands a high degree of concord with the environment in all its aspects. The culmination of Skutch's life's work, Moral Foundations is a tour de force of analysis, research and critical thinking and an important contribution to the study of ethics and philosophy.
