Ethical theories are exalted principles of morals meant for guiding practical life, but more often than not many such theories seem to be inapplicable or difficult to apply in actual life situations. To deal with this predicament, Professor P. K. Mohapatra comes up with the view that ethical theories are objective but defeasible and pleads for their justified violation under adequately demanding situations. Mohapatra's view is being widely discussed and debated. Several eminent writers and some bright young scholars, who discuss this view threadbare. Though most of the writers appreciate and augment this view, some with additional supporting arguments, some also have differed and adduced critical responses. Mohapatra responds to major criticisms with effective philosophical articulation. The purpose of the book is to emphasize the relevance of philosophy, especially moral philosophy, in the life of men and equip conscious intellectuals with necessary theoretical knowledge and skill to tackle socio-moral problems. Printed Pages: 238.
