9781133049746: Ethics: Theory and Contemporary Issues, Concise, 2nd Edition

Closely examine the major areas of ethical theory as well as a broad range of contemporary moral debates using MacKinnon's ETHICS: THEORY AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES--CONCISE EDITION, 2E. Illuminating overviews and frank language make even complex philosophical concepts reader-friendly. Comprehensive, clear-sighted introductions to general and specific areas of ethical debate cover major ethical theories, including feminist ethics, contract theory, and ethical relativism, before delving into issues ranging from euthanasia and sexual morality to war and globalization. Increased coverage of contemporary dilemmas highlights issues of widespread interest, including torture and terrorism, "partial birth" abortion, cloning, same-sex marriage, and global distributive justice. An innovative online resource center offers, among other things, animated simulations. These simulations allow the reader to personally engage with dilemmas and thought experiments commonly presented in introductions to ethics.

Book Description Cengage Learning, Inc. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Ethics: Theory & Contemporary Issues (2nd Revised edition), Barbara MacKinnon, MacKinnon's "Ethics: Theory & Contemporary Issues - Concise Edition, 2/e" presents focused coverage of the major areas of ethical theory and an engaging collection of contemporary moral debates. The concise edition removes readings found in the market-leading comprehensive edition, but the remainder of the content is identical, providing a balanced and effective introduction to ethics that integrates theory with today's most pressing moral issues. Rigorous, yet reader-friendly, illuminating overviews and selections of readings from both traditional and contemporary sources make even complex philosophical concepts accessible for students. Comprehensive, clear-sighted introductions to general and specific areas of ethical debate cover major ethical theories, including feminist ethics, contract theory, and ethical relativism, before delving into issues ranging from euthanasia and sexual morality to war and globalization. Increased coverage of contemporary dilemmas highlights issues of widespread interest, including torture and terrorism, "partial birth" abortion, cloning, same-sex marriage, and global distributive justice. An innovative online resource center offers, among other things, animated simulations. These simulations offer students the opportunity to personally engage with dilemmas and thought experiments commonly presented in introduction to ethics classes and provide instructors with a way to seamlessly integrate online assignments into the class.
