    Examples of Morals in Literature. Keep in mind that examples of morals in a story are different from the moral of a er, morals are rules that govern a person's behavior. The moral of a story, however, is the overarching teaching the author is trying to present.   For some, the questions themselves might seem absurd. It is striking that there are thousands of books about the history of ideas, hundreds of histories of philosophy, but only a handful of books about the history of morality. One reason is that there is a widespread perception of morality as occupying a sphere of its own.

    In this book Bernard Gert aims to describe and justify common morality. Common morality, as he understands it, is the moral system that most thoughtful people implicitly use in arriving at moral judgements. According to Gert this system is based on five basic harms -- death, pain, disability, loss of freedom, loss of pleasure. Book Description: In a lengthy new concluding chapter labeled "A Reply to Critics," Lon L. Fuller extends and clarifies his definition of the relation between law and morality put forward in the first () edition ofThe Morality of original argument distinguishes between the morality of duty and the morality of aspiration, both of which bear on the design and operation of social.

    According to one definition, morality is an active process which is, "at the very least, the effort to guide one's conduct by reason, that is, doing what there are the best reasons for doing, while giving equal consideration to the interests of all those affected by what one does.".   However, unlike with moral absolutism, the moral universalist (as I define it here-this is more my conception than one generally agreed upon in the literature) does not see morality .
