Ethics introduces the issues and controversies of contemporary moral philosophy to undergraduate students who have already done an introductory course in philosophy. It will help students to think more clearly about how to form their moral beliefs in the wisest and most rational way. The basic approaches to metaethics and normative ethics are related to specific issues, particularly those of racism, education, and abortion. Written in a clear and concise way by an experienced textbook author, Ethics will also be of interest to the general reader.
Unique features of the textbook:
* boxed key ideas
* Glossary of philosophical terms
* Chapter summaries and study questions
* Annotated further reading and Internet Web resources

Industry Reviews

"The book reinforces the conviction that reasonable, undogmatic answers can be given to the main question of ethics." -Robert Arrington, Georgia State University "Unusually rigorous. The best and most thorough treatment of foundational issues that I have seen . . . The discussion of abortion is outstanding." -Thomas Carson, Loyola University of Chicago
