9780199946792: Disputed Moral Issues: A Reader

Ideal for courses in contemporary moral problems, applied ethics, and introduction to ethics, Disputed Moral Issues: A Reader, Third Edition, offers a unique pedagogical approach that bridges moral theory and applied ethics.

Bringing together seventy-three engaging articles, it also includes an accessible Moral Theory Primer (Chapter 1) that outlines the guiding principles of moral theory, presents seven central moral theories--including social contract theory, which is new to this edition--and relates those theories to the issues debated in the articles. Chapter 2 presents seven readings in moral theory that correspond to the theories discussed in the Theory Primer. The remaining chapters (3-15) feature readings on a wide variety of contemporary moral issues. Each selection is enhanced by a host of pedagogical features, including concise summaries, reader cues referring to pertinent moral theories, and reading and discussion questions. A "Quick Guide to Moral Theories" at the front of the book and an extensive glossary of key terms are also included. A "User's Guide," which follows the preface, shows instructors how they can integrate moral theories and applied ethics into their courses.

Review:


"Disputed Moral Issues is by far the best reader I have ever used. Its unique strength is its ability to facilitate students' learning about how ethical theory is deployed in order to help us rationally tackle the controversial issues of our age. I hope that it never goes out of print."--Mitchell Haney, University of North Florida


"This reader is exceptionally well done. The connection between theory and application is made beautifully clear. Timmons offers very clear introductions, selection summaries, and questions."--Sara Roberts-Cady, Fort Lewis College
