Fairchilds' Moral Philosophy; or, The Science of Obligation. BY J. H. FAIRCHILDS, President of Oberlin College. 1 vol. 12mo.
The aim of this volume is to set forth, more fully than has hitherto been done, the doctrine that virtue, in its elementary form, consists in benevolence, and that all forms of virtuous action are modifications of this principle. After presenting this view of obligation, the author takes up the questions of Practical Ethics, Government and Personal Rights and Duties, and treats them in their relation to Benevolence, aiming at a solution of the problems of right and wrong upon this simple principle.
