Can't We Make Moral Judgements? (Mind Matters Series) Hardcover – January 1, 1991
In this book, Mary Midgely turns a spotlight on the fashionable view that we no longer need or use moral judgements. She shows how the question of whether or not we can make moral judgements must inevitably affect our attitudes to the law and its institutions, but also to events that occur in our daily lives.

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 7, 2008
In 150 pages Midgley fills in the moral morass of postmodern relativism and argues for COMMON sense, and a common morality, in an airtight, beautiful exposition that is among the most superb documents ever penned by a human being. If you are tired of Deleuze and Foucault, Lacan and Neitzsche, and want to read a human being who is more brilliant than any of these and yet still cares abou the world, this tiny volume will do much to light the way to a better life and better way of thinking for you. Don't miss it!
Midgley the mighty!
