The combination of readings on moral problems, introduced by a comprehensive section on ethical theories, makes this an anthology that mshould work well in the classroom. The text opens with a two-part introductory essay on the nature of morality and the main theories of normative ethics that gives students a needed foundation, whether the focus of the course is on theory versus applied ethics or social versus personal issues. The author then presents historical essays from the three main traditions (Aristotle, Kant and Mill) as well as three rival perspectives from contemporary philosophers.
