A new series of summarized texts commonly used on theology and philosophy high school and college courses.

- Publisher Briefly: Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil is a summary of Beyond Good and Evil, by Friedrich Nietzsche. This Briefly guide is designed to assist AS and A level students, as well as university students and the general reader, in acquiring knowledge and understanding of this key philosophical text. The Briefly closely adheres to Nietzsche's text, enabling the reader to follow each development in the argument as it occurs. An introductory chapter provides a brief introduction to Nietzsche and the period in which he wrote and why Beyond Good and Evil is so significant. Following the detailed summary, which page references the original and includes useful key quotes, is a shorter summary acting as an overview of Beyond Good and Evil, which is intended to aid memory. With suggestions for further reading and an extensive glossary of terms found in Beyond Good and Evil, this Briefly is a thorough introduction for those starting their study of Nietzsche and his work.

- Publisher George Edward Moore's Principia Ethica was published by Cambridge University Press in 1903 and this was the birth of the science of ethics. So groundbreaking was this book at the time, that practically overnight, ethicists became meta-ethicists and the book ever since has been recognised as the definitive starting point for 20th century ethical theory. In it Moore is concerned with applying logic to ethics, and with demonstrating that logic can give ethics a better foundation. Moore defines ethics as an inquiry into what is good, including what is good in human conduct. Moore supposed that common sense beliefs about the world were correct as they were and shows how false premises about the way in which good is to be defined can lead to false conclusions about ethical conduct. Known to influence the thinking of Russell, Wittgenstein, Ryle and Keynes to mention but a few, understanding this key work in 20th C ethics is essential, and made achievable in this Briefly guide.
