From the Back Cover:

In The Practice of Ethics, Hugh LaFollette argues that ethics, like medicine, is fundamentally practical; the aim of ethics is not just to further ethical knowledge but to improve how people live. He employs relevant insights from other academic disciplines and uses arguments and examples from contemporary issues such as race relations, euthanasia, gun control, and animal rights, to create a coherent narrative that is theoretically and pragmatically grounded. Timely and engaging, this introductory text is an outstanding guide to the field of applied ethics, and is an excellent companion to the new third edition of LaFollette’s authoritative anthology Ethics in Practice.
