  1. 1. Principia Ethica

    "Principia Ethica" is a philosophical work that argues for the objectivity of good, stating that it is a simple, indefinable and non-natural property that cannot be broken down into any other properties or concepts. The author challenges the prevailing ethical theories of his time, such as utilitarianism and hedonism, and introduces the "naturalistic fallacy," the idea that it is incorrect to define "good" in terms of natural properties. This book is known for its rigorous argumentation and its significant influence on the development of analytic philosophy and ethics.
