This volume addresses the ultimate question of modern ethics: how is morality possible after the "death of God". It is the closing volume - after "General Ethics" and "Philosophy of Morals" - of Agnes Heller's trilogy "A Theory of Morals". The book opens by exploring Nietszche's ethics of personality as exemplified in his passionate critical engagement with Wagner's Parsifal in a reading of his "A Geneology of Morals". It continues by examining the case for a non-absolutist ethics employing ideas, norms and rules from traditional and modern moral philosophies, particularly those of Kant and Kierkgaard. It concludes by proposing the re-introduction of such traditional concepts as love, beauty and happiness into modern ethics.
