Classical Ethics is a thorough and well-balanced compendium of Western and non-Western ethical systems in a multicultural historical framework.

Zeuschner focuses on the key concepts and presumptions of 13 major philosophers from around the world. He utilizes a systematic approach in his writing that describes the basic components of each system and discusses how each has maintained its appeal for so many centuries. In this text, Western tradition is represented by major classical figures: Socrates and Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, St. Augustine, Aquinas, Butler, Hume, Kant, and Mill. Eastern ethical tradition is represented by Indian Buddhist ethics, Chinese Confucian ethics, and Chinese Taoist ethics of Lao-tzu and Chuang-tzu.

This work broadens a student's perspective and enriches one's understanding of ethical principles as they occur and have developed historically in different cultural contexts.
