Summary

Doing Ethics is really three books in one: a clear and comprehensible introduction to ethical theory, a practical guide for applying critical thinking skills to contemporary moral issues, and an anthology of readings in applied ethics. Substantial pedagogy reinforces core concepts and spurs students' own thinking throughout. The Second Edition includes 38 new readings and 2 new topics, but the price has remained the same as the First Edition, making Doing Ethics the best value by far, for students.
