Cengage Advantage Books: Ethics: Discovering Right and Wrong (Print)
The classic ethics text written by one of contemporary philosophy's most skilled, ardent teachers, Louis P. Pojman, is now revised by best-selling author and editor of the INTERNET ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PHILOSOPHY, James Fieser. ETHICS: DISCOVERING RIGHT AND WRONG, Seventh Edition, offers a concise yet comprehensive overview of the fundamental objectives and outlooks of ethical theory.
Written with Pojman's hallmark engaging, conversational manner with strong supporting pedagogy, this book challenges students to develop their own moral theories and to reason through ethical problems for themselves. The text even-handedly raises critical questions and fosters independent thinking within a rigorous presentation that draws numerous examples from both classical and contemporary sources. This edition maintains the text's clarity and strengths with its non-dogmatic style and generous presentation of various positions. This revision includes more feminist and multicultural ethical perspectives.
The book clearly and logically guides your students from initial chapters that discuss general concerns about meta-ethics to presentations of major moral theories. Later chapters address special topics in personal and religious ethics as well as the most recent developments in moral theory. Study questions for each chapter and useful bibliographies further assist students delving deeper into philosophy. A companion website offers additional support with material on Divine Command theory and how to write ethics papers (found previously as appendices in the book) as well as essay questions and numerous interactive learning aids. An alternate edition of this text with key readings from Aristotle, Kant, and Mill bound into the back is also available.
