RIGHT AND REASON by Fr. Austin Fagothey, S.J. is one of the greatest and most successful Ethics books written to date. Though originally published in 1959 it remains remarkably contemporary and is easily accessible for most adults. Phrased in non-technical language, RIGHT AND REASON is a thoroughly competent book in the philosophy of Ethics from the Aristotelian-Thomistic school of thought. The Classic principles of Ethics as laid out here are as valid today as ever, and anyone who attempts to grapple with our new moral questions, i.e. medical ethics, family issues, international relations, etc. - without solid grounding, is sure to flounder in guesswork, emotional thinking and mere personal opinion. This book stands as a beacon of common sense in today's confused world.
