Bernard Gert (/ɡɜːrt/; October 16, 1934 – December 24, 2011) was a moral philosopher known primarily for his work in normative ethics, as well as in medical ethics, especially pertaining to psychology. His work has been called "among the clearest and most comprehensive on the contemporary scene", "far more detailed and more concretely worked out" and "systematic" than competing comprehensive ethical theories.

Gert argues that morality is an informal system that does not provide answers to every moral question but does always limit the range of morally acceptable options and so explains why some moral questions cannot be resolved. The first complete draft of that theory was completed in 1966. In 1988, Oxford published a major revision, Morality: A New Justification of the Moral Rules, and in 1998 it published another major revision, Morality: Its Nature and Justification. The first is Morality and the New Genetics: A Guide for Students and Health Care Providers (Sudbury, Mass.

Its Nature and Justification. For more than thirty years, philosopher Bernard Gert has been developing and refining his distinctive and comprehensive moral theory. His classic work, The Moral Rules: A New Rational Foundation for Morality, was first published in 1970. In 1988, OUP published a fourth revision titled Morality: A New Justification of the Moral Rules. There is much to admire and agree with in Bernard Gert's book Morality: Its Nature and Justification. -Dan W. Brock, Brown University Gert's rich, probing, and brilliantly illuminating treatment of an 'evergreen' in moral theory, the question, 'Why be moral?'"-Kurt Baier, Professor Emeritus, University of Pittsburgh.

This book is the result of three years of discussions at Dartmouth College between philosophers, physicians, scientists, and specialists in dealing with the moral problems associated with genetic disabilities. This collaborative endeavor was made possible by a grant from the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) section of the Human Genome Project (HGP). The overall purpose is to show how philosophical analysis can be of use in developing policies to deal with the moral issues that have arisen from the new genetics.
