A Short Moral Lexicon
A Short Moral Lexicon
Description
Form the Jacket

The present lexicon is not lie one of the usual kind. A lexicon is usually historical in nature. This lexicon is only partly so. It does two other things. Firstly, it takes up a number of moral terms from day-to-day life, and defines them visualizing a variety of situations in which they may be used, and seeing in what sense or senses they are used there. Secondly, it takes up a number of moral terms which may be used to designate a whole lot of situations with which may be confronted directly or indirectly, and defines them by referring to those features in the given situations which have led us to designate them in that way. As a result, this lexicon not only takes a look at the history of moral philosophy; it also takes a direct look at our moral life.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
