9780205053148: Ethics: Theory and Practice (11th Edition)

Making Ethical Ideas Accessible to Students!

 

With a clear presentation, Ethics: Theory and Practice educates readers about ethical theory and has them apply what they learn to specific classic and contemporary moral problems (lying, cheating, establishing ethical business practices, honoring ethical obligations in medicine, etc.).

 

Jacques P. Thiroux first wrote this text 1977 in order to educate readers about ethical theory and its applications in a way that beginning students could understand.  The result was an accessible text that isn't too technical and doesn't plunge into complex readings without sufficient background.  The text is fully updated with global issues and non-Western ethical views. Keith W. Krasemann now continues Thiroux's efforts of making ethical ideas accessible to students.  Besides updating the foundations of the text, Krasemann incorporates new and relevant material, most of which is often unique only to this text.

About the Author:

Dear Colleague,

 

The importance of teaching ethics in higher education has never been greater. In our rapidly changing, globally expanding world, key challenges and problems revolve around fundamental issues in ethics. Leadership in such a world demands courage, commitment, character and good ethical reasoning skills to address these challenges head on. With the eleventh edition of Ethics: Theory and Practice I wish to acknowledge the significant contributions made by all involved in the teaching of ethics courses who engage students with the core issues of our time.

 

Ethics: Theory and Practice is utilized by many professors in their ethics courses and I invite you to review the eleventh edition. The book is divided into eight chapters of ethical theory balanced by eight chapters of applied ethics. It also includes eight appendices. The text is comprehensive, and each chapter features a chapter summary, many exercises with suggestions for paper topics and ethics projects, and a list of discussion questions and an ethics problem. In addition, each chapter on applied ethics includes many case studies. Plus at the text of the text, a substantial list of supplementary readings is included along with a complete glossary of ethical terms. The eleventh edition is also accompanied by www.MyThinkingLab, an online website that houses an eBook version of the print text, case studies, videos, additional readings, quizzes and more!

 

I would like to thank the many professors who use Ethics: Theory and Practice and the new reviewers of this textbook. Your comments and constructive recommendations are always welcome and will help make future editions better. I’m also interested in hearing about the innovative ways that you use the book in your classes, successful pedagogical techniques, and student reactions. Feel free to email me at Kraseman@cod.edu.

I wish you continued success in your teaching of ethics courses.

 

Best Regards,

 

Keith W. Krasemann

College of DuPage

Review:

"I personally think that the text is quite comprehensive. It does a good job of covering both the theoretical bases for ethics (in the first half of the text) and the current issues and areas of contention in ethics (in the remaining portion of the text)."

-Instructor Eugene Muhammad, Triton Community College

 

"Fundamental concepts, various theories, and a diverse set of issues are all well-covered, thoughtfully explained, and opposing points of view are considered."

-Professor William Ferraiolo, San Joaquin Delta College

 

"This is my favorite ethics text and is far better than any I have worked with. The variety of ethical theories and the depth of discussion for critical topics makes this a first choice."

-Professor Russell Fail, Kaplan University
