Product description


“Many books help students think about difficult questions but this text goes about doing so ‘when it matters’ — while they are on their feet in the emergency ward or on a big city street helping the homeless.” – Gus Lyn-Piluso, Seneca College


"Were this text available yesterday, I would certainly be using it…For an introductory ethics course within an applied college level program, this book is the right choice to meet my teaching requirements.”– Al Parkin, St. Lawrence College



“The range of topics is both impressive and interesting…designed to provoke personal reflection and to encourage the student to use the theoretical chapters of the book. Both seem fundamental in an ethics course.” – Michael O’Brien, Vanier College

From the Back Cover

“This Canadian text cannot tell readers what the ultimate right and wrong or good and bad is. Its intent is to make the readers’ own ethical judgments more conscious, more broadly considered and more ethically informed.”...from the Introduction.


By offering a combination of ethical theory and practical application, the author has created a text that is reader-friendly and interactive for college students and adult learners taking their first course in Ethics. It has three parts: Part I, UNDERSTANDING THE FOUNDATIONS OF ETHICS; Part II:  CURRENT ISSUES FOR CANADIANS;



Canadian students will relate well to the content because it applies theory in discussions, case studies and exercises on issues and dilemmas, be those personal, communal, national or global, which are part of our experience as Canadians.  Reflective questions and worksheets are included throughout the text for students to complete.  Students are thus asked to think about and respond to the content as they are reading it, for a deeper learning experience.
