Closely examine the major areas of ethical theory as well as a broad range of contemporary moral debates using MacKinnon's acclaimed ETHICS: THEORY AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES, Seventh Edition. Illuminating overviews and a selection of readings from both traditional and contemporary sources make even complex philosophical concepts reader friendly. Comprehensive, clear-sighted introductions to general and specific areas of ethical debate cover major ethical theories, including feminist ethics, contract theory, and ethical relativism, before delving into issues ranging from euthanasia and sexual morality to war and globalization. A broader range of voices and philosophical traditions in this edition includes continental and non-Western philosophers, with new readings from prominent ethicists. Increased coverage of contemporary dilemmas highlights issues of widespread interest, including torture and terrorism, "partial birth" abortion, cloning, same-sex marriage, and global distributive justice. An innovative online resource center offers, among other things, animated simulations. These simulations allows you to personally engage with dilemmas and thought experiments commonly presented in introduction to ethics classes and provide instructors with a way to seamlessly integrate online assignments into the class.

Review:

"Excellent, perspicuous, and well-balanced. Barbara McKinnon manages to give to a typical undergraduate a broad and nuanced survey of subtly theoretical and practical points, as well as introducing the student to some of the most vital contemporary ethical dilemmas faced by our culture and humanity per se." -- Will Kallfelz, New Mexico State University

"This text offers an effective balance between ethical theory and applied ethics, addressing all of the major theories and issues in clear, comprehensive and accessible units." -- Leigh Johnson, Rhodes College
