9780199758814: A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox

Thoroughly optimistic, A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox, Third Edition, invites students to approach ethical issues with a reconstructive intent--to make room for more and better options than the rigid "pro" and "con" positions that have developed around tough problems like abortion and environmental ethics. Employing an accessible, consistently engaging writing style, Anthony Weston covers the skills that are vital to making real progress in ethics, including critical thinking, creative problem-solving, moral vision, genuine dialogue, and many more. Provocative selections from a wide range of philosophers, essayists, community activists, and students are interwoven with Weston's own discussions. The text is enhanced by extensive "Exercises and Notes" sections at the end of each chapter, new "Using Your Tools" sections after every two chapters, and a detailed guide for teachers as an appendix. Join instructors and students around the country who are using the experiential and applied activities inspired by this "toolbox" of skills to design interactive and collaborative ethics courses.

About the Author:


Anthony Weston is Professor of Philosophy and Environmental Studies at Elon University. He is the author of twelve other books including A Practical Companion to Ethics, Fourth Edition (2010), Creativity for Critical Thinkers (2007), and Creative Problem-Solving in Ethics (2007), all published by Oxford University Press, and Mobilizing the Green Imagination (2012).

Review:


"A highly accessible introduction to basic moral philosophy, particularly applied ethics. Weston effectively shows students how to develop and sustain critical and constructive thinking in ethics in the face of many temptations to follow instinct, plead relativism, or get dogmatic instead. I LOVE the pedagogical tools and extensive resources listed throughout the text and in 'The Toolbox in the Classroom' section at the end."--Karla Pierce, Florida State College at Jacksonville


"What is especially strong about the text is the pedagogy, its tone--which is quite suitable for students new to studying ethics--and its organization. Significant portions are dedicated to establishing how ethics is thought out and how one may integrate one's ethical thinking into one's life."--Kathryn Valdivia, University of San Diego and Cuyamaca College


"I find the book's most attractive features to be its short, readable sections, its optimistic tone, and its attempt to present many sides of a moral issue in a sympathetic light. The pedagogical devices are excellent, and I relied on them extensively in my teaching of the material."--Russell DiSilvestro, California State University, Sacramento
