Minch and Weigel's LIVING ETHICS demonstrates that ethics are not a set of abstract exercises, but powerful and deeply personal questions about what it means to lead a good life. Rather than separating theory and applied ethics, this unique text focuses on the practical, experiential value of ethical reflection. You will never again view ethics as a set of technical games that apply only to narrowly defined cases or political controversies that don't affect you. Instead, the book organizes study around a range of basic human activities that have ethical significance, such as learning, loving, reasoning, and relating. This comprehensive anthology offers a breadth of readings that integrates feminist and multicultural viewpoints for a broader range of perspectives and genres than any other text in this field. You'll find extensive literary, journalistic, and other texts outside of traditional academic philosophy. LIVING ETHICS's focus on contemporary issues and interdisciplinary selections makes the study of ethics relevant and accessible no matter what your major. With the help of the text's effective learning tools, you can confidently approach philosophical questions for the first time and comprehend even the most challenging material. Introductions before each selection highlight crucial themes, while Reading Guides, Critical Thinking and extensive review questions, and Dialogue features focus on fundamental arguments, clarify key concepts, and compare ideas from various readings in the book. Innovative online learning tools further emphasize the relevance and value of the text's material to your everyday life.

Review:

"I think this book fulfills a need in the market for those who teach courses that are meant to be interdisciplinary or introductory to the field. It would be a credible addition to those ethics texts meant to support a diversity or global awareness requirement." Joanna Forstrom, Spring Hill College.

"The authors' writing style is direct, friendly and clear throughout. They invite students to explore the articles in the book, encourage students to understand the articles, and then ask students to apply the ideas to their own experiences." Steve Dickerson, S.Puget Sound CC.

"Minch and Weigel provide and outstanding vision for the teaching and living of ethics, both in their prospectus and in their selections. Frankly, I was honored to be able to read through these selections, and I would love to use the completed version of this in my own course." Patrick Williams, Chemeketa Community College.
