Analyzing Moral Issues

Analyzing Moral Issues

In Analyzing Moral Issues, the author continues to combine a moral-issues approach to teaching ethics with a solid foundation in moral theory and reasoning. The 7th edition has been updated with new readings and cases pertinent to the issues of today, including income inequality, racism, freedom of speech, and drug and alcohol use. AMI anchors students' understanding of ethics in a broad perspective of traditions, including virtue ethics (Aristotelian and Confucian, Buddhist and feminist care ethics), deontology, utilitarianism, and Rawlsian ethics. Using primary source material and cases to illustrate these traditions gives students the opportunity to practice making real-life moral decisions.
