Morality Play is an ideal supplement for ethics courses, offering a case study approach that is both flexible and practical. It provides three alternative methods of organization for universal teaching approaches: contemporary moral problems, ethical theories, and moral principles. The introduction illustrates how to effectively use case studies in the classroom and provides a short review of the fundamentals of argumentation and critical thinking.

Featuring ten new case studies, the latest edition continues to spotlight some of the most controversial, thought-provoking issues in ethics today. Themes such as crime and punishment, life and death, habitat and humanity, liberty and coercion, and value and culture are made relevant through insightful case studies drawn from newspaper accounts, legal opinions, and other factual sources. The cases present discrete problems designed to make readers examine their abstract notions about morality.

Title of related interest from Waveland Press: Birsch, Introduction to Ethical Theories: A Procedural Approach (ISBN 9781478606703).

Review:

"I really love the way Dr. Pierce writes. It makes the text insightful and accessible at the same time. I predict that students taking a philosophy course for the first time will really enjoy reading this book, as well as participating in the discussions of the cases." --Candace Gauthier, University of North Carolina, Wilmington

"An outstanding compilation of brief readings in the form of case studies with appropriate discussion questions. The topical and theory-based tables of contents allow the case studies and questions accessibility to any instructional approach. A most useful, comprehensive, yet inexpensive ethical assist." --Phillip Lioi, Polk State College

"Very practical and relevant. These cases are not merely educational, they are also challenging and designed to stimulate discussion." --Isaiah Nengean, Des Moines Area Community College
