Based on Bertrand Russell's
views, Morals Without Mystery,
by Lee Eisler, offers a liberating
alternative to established
morality. Russell called it "a
well-written short presentation
of the kind of morality I believe
in and advocate."
Russell's rational morality is
capable of winning universal
acceptance because it aims to
satisfy universal desires; because
it favors no one group over
another; and, most important in
a world of nuclear armaments,
because it provides a method of
resolving moral disagreements.
