9780195306200: Creative Problem-Solving in Ethics (Oxford Paperback Reference)

This book offers a uniquely constructive set of tools for engaging complex and controversial ethical problems. Covering such practical methods as diversifying options, lateral thinking, reframing problems, approaching conflicts as creative opportunities, and many others, it shows how to find "room to move" inside even the most challenging ethical problems, and thereby discover new and productive ways to deal with them. The book features numerous exercises and applications that consider a wide range of familiar ethical issues--including the moral status of animals, the death penalty, poverty, drug use, and many others--and ends with some of the toughest: abortion, assisted suicide, and environmental ethics.
An ideal supplement for any general ethics course, Creative Problem-Solving in Ethics can also be used in more specific "applied" courses like bioethics, business ethics, and social ethics, as well as in critical thinking courses that emphasize ethics. In addition, it provides a concise and engaging introduction to creative thinking for workshop participants and general readers. From the very beginning of the book, readers will discover that creative thinking can offer imaginative and promising alternatives to seemingly intractable ethical dilemmas.

"Anyone who has struggled with ethical dilemmaswill appreciate this brilliant little handbook by Weston, known in the field for his ingenuity in teaching ethics. This optimistic book, used alone or as a companion to any text on ethics, will undoubtedly facilitate the discovery of refreshing, insightful ways of coping with baffling conflicts of value. Highly recommended."--S.A. Mason, Choice
