Product Description


Comments on the first edition:

Ethical Theory: A Concise Anthology chooses the right topics for an introductory course in moral philosophy. The contents combine historical readings with contemporary work. The editors’ introductions to the issues are clear, helpful, and provocative in the conclusions they draw.” ― Dennis McKerlie, University of Calgary

From the Back Cover

This first-rate introduction to ethical theory contains sections on various forms of ethical theory, such as egoism, virtue ethics, divine command theory, and consequentialism. Each section includes two or three of the most important contributions to the field, together with brief introductions by the editors. The second edition contains an improved approach to applied ethics. Each chapter on moral theories now includes a selection that deals with a moral problem, such as human cloning, abortion, and global warming. The selection illustrates how the relevant theoretical approach is put to use. There is therefore a much tighter integration between theory and practice than before. The new edition also contains an improved section on feminist ethical theory.

HASH(0x9e4a7c84) out of 5 stars This seller's shipping policy is terrible Feb. 23 2014

I specifically chose this seller because it is literally one town next to mine (I can drive there in 15 minutes). In doing this I though that I wouldn't need a two day shipping rate because its literally right next door - I should get it in no time!

WRONG - It supposedly was shipped on jan 23rd, never got a tracking number though. And I didn't receive it until Feb 12th! I was hoping to have it for my class in time to start reading it, but nope, by the time I got it we were almost done with that book!!

If I didn't need it for citations for a paper I would've sent it back.

Please ship things faster, or use a different service or something, its ridiculous. You can't keep customers if you don't ship things in a way that is helpful to the consumer.

This book was used very infrequently by my ethics professor. I considered it a somewhat waste of money, but to someone interested in ethics it may be a good read.
