LINK: Two Sites Related to Darwinian Ethics

While web browsing, I stumbled across two sites related to nontheistic and/or Darwinian ethics. Pretty much anyone interested in The Secular Outpost will probably be interested in both of these sites and for the same reasons.

1. The website for the late James Rachels. For those of you who do not know who James Rachels was, he was an important moral philosopher. Among his many publications were an interesting argument for atheism (republished on the Secular Web) and his book, Created from Animals: The Moral Implications of Darwinism. The entire text of that book, along with several other books and articles, are available for free on that site.

2. Larry Arnhart’s blog, “Darwinian Conservatism.” Arnhart is the author of Darwinian Natural Right: The Biological Ethics of Human Nature, a magisterial defense of a secular approach to ethics that is Aristotelian, Humean, and Darwinian.
