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 accesible to students. Besides updating the foundations of the text, Krasemann incoporates new and relevant material, most of which is often unique only to this text.

From the Publisher:

Evenly balanced between theory and applications, this text shows students how to establish an ethical theory and how to apply it to a range of specific moral issues. Using many recent cases and examples, the text examines ethical problems in such areas as mercy killing, personal relations, business, sexuality, medicine, and the environment.

From the Back Cover:

  • The information it contains is very accessible because the language is clear and free from jargon.
  • Every chapter has objectives stated at the beginning and a summary at the end.
  • Chapters on theory have review and discussion questions.
  • Chapters on practice include cases for each of the ethical problems discussed as well as discussion questions.
  • There is a pivotal chapter between the theory and practice chapters that encourages students to establish their own ethical systems; it shows them how to do this by presenting assumptions about ethical systems and what an ethical system should contain.
  • It presents the author's own ethical system and explains how he arrived at what he believes; the author encourages critical evaluation of his ethical system by instructors and students.
  • There are appendices that show how the author has applied his own ethics to specific ethical problems, again encouraging critical evaluation of his applications.
  • The author encourages further study by including supplemental readings at the end of each chapter.
  • There is a glossary at the end of the book.
