As the perfect companion to introduction to ethics courses, Dell'Olio and Simon's reader includes the most influential ethical theories without overwhelming the beginning student. It contains a variety of readings encompassing contemporary and classic philosophers, male and female perspectives of both Western and non-Western ethical traditions, and readings in both theoretical and applied ethics. Introduction to Ethics comprises of thirty-seven essays divided into nine chapters; the first chapter introduces the nature of moral theory with a brief account of the different moral theories that will follow in the text. Chapters 2 through 8 are each devoted to a particular moral theory with readings that represent the position and those who challenge it, accompanied by an application of the theory to a particular moral problem. Finally, chapter 9 offers readings in practical guidance on "living a good life." Each chapter has a brief introduction that provides an overview of the selection with pointers on what to note as the selection is read and concludes with a series of thought-provoking study questions and a selection for further reading making it easier for students to understand and appreciate their reading.

About the Author:

Andrew J. Dell'Olio is a professor of philosophy at Hope College. Caroline J. Simon is a professor of philosophy at Hope College.

Review:

This is a quite wonderful collection of essays with splendid introductions. Andrew Dell'Olio and Caroline Simon have provided a book that begs to be taught and the invites reflection not just about moral theory but about our moral lives. (Allen Verhey, Duke Divinity School)

This is an excellent introductory ethics reader. Selections are wisely chosen, with attention paid to both theoretical and applied ethics, classical and contemporary authors, Eastern and Western traditions, and religious and non-religious perspectives. The well-written introductions to the selections and the helpful study questions will prove useful to both student and instructor. (Kelly Clark, Calvin College)
