ETHICS: DISCOVERING RIGHT AND WRONG, 8E offers students an engaging and comprehensive overview of ethical theory. Written by one of contemporary philosophy's top teachers and revised by a best selling author, this textbook combines a conversational and non-dogmatic approach with strong supporting pedagogy. By even-handedly raising critical questions drawn from both classical and contemporary sources, this edition challenges students to develop their own moral theories and apply them to today's ethical problems. This revision also presents an even broader presentation of various positions, featuring more feminist and multicultural perspectives as well. ETHICS: DISCOVERING RIGHT AND WRONG, 8E begins with chapters orienting students to questions of meta-ethics and major moral theories. Later chapters address special topics in personal and religious ethics as well as the most recent developments in moral theory, including a new chapter on Biology and Ethics. Useful bibliographies and study questions for each chapter aid students in grasping the material and delving deeper into philosophy.
