Summary

"Ethical Theory: A Concise Anthology chooses the right topics for an introductory course in moral philosophy. The contents combine historical readings with contemporary work. The editors' introductions to the issues are clear, helpful, and provocative in the conclusions they draw. An advantage of the book for teaching purposes is a section on applications of the moral theories it discusses, which allows it to substitute for two or more alternative texts."---Dennis McKerlie, University of Calgary

This First-Rate Introduction to Ethical Theory contains sections on various forms of ethical theory, such as egoism, virtue ethics, divine command theory, and consequentialism. Each section includes two or three of the most important contributions to the field, together with brief introductions by the editors. The second edition contains an improved approach to applied ethics. Each chapter on moral theories now includes a selection that deals with a moral problem, such as human cloning, abortion, and global warming. The selection illustrates how the relevant theoretical approach is put to use. There is therefore a much tighter integration between theory and practice than before. The new edition also contains an improved section on feminist ethical theory.
