This survey with readings can be used as the main book for courses in moral philosophy or as a supplement for courses in applied ethics. It offers an accessible, comprehensive overview of classical and modern moral theory; unique coverage of rights, justice, liberty and law; and real-life cases that introduce each chapter. While the book's content is theoretical material in ethics rather than applied ethics, Beauchamp consistently applies these theories to practical moral problems. This new edition gives greater attention to Hume, moral psychology theories, and feminist theory.
