Product Description

From the Back Cover

This anthology is designed for use as a brief introduction to ethical theory. Included are sections on various forms of ethical theory: Ethical Relativism; Divine Command Theory; Egoism; Consequentialism; Deontology; Justice; Virtue Ethics; Feminist Ethics; and, new to the second edition, Pluralism. Each section includes two or three of the most important and interesting contributions to the field, together with brief introductions by the editors. The second edition contains an improved approach to applied ethics. Whereas in the first edition the authors included a chapter at the end of the book that contained selections that dealt with moral problems, in the second edition they have dropped that chapter in favour of an approach that ties moral issues more closely to the moral theories. 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 structural approach should make the book significantly more effective in the classroom. The new edition also contains an improved section on feminist ethical theory.

This seller's shipping policy is terrible Feb. 23 2014
By Joshua Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Needed for ethics class March 18 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
