Summary

Brief yet thorough and affordably priced, The Ethical Life: Fundamental Readings in Ethics and Moral Problems is ideal for courses in introductory ethics and contemporary moral problems. Featuring thirty-nine readings divided into four parts--Value Theory, Normative Ethics, Metaethics, and Moral Problems--it introduces students to ethical theory and a wide range of moral issues. The essays include selections from such historically influential philosophers as Aristotle, Hume, Kant, and Mill alongside work by contemporary philosophers like Philippa Foot, Robert Nozick, Peter Singer, and Judith Jarvis Thomson. Detailed section and reading introductions provide helpful contextual information. Designed as a companion reader to Russ Shafer-Landau's textbook, The Fundamentals of Ethics, The Ethical Life is also comprehensive enough to be used on its own. The book is enhanced by an Instructor's Manual and Testbank on CD and a Companion Website for students and instructors.
