For courses in Introduction to Ethics
Make ethical ideas accessible to students
Ethics: Theory and Practice introduces ethical theory and its applications in a way that beginning students can understand. Delivering a balanced overview of the discipline, authors Jacques Thiroux and Keith Krasemann devote eight chapters to key ethical theories – including both Western and non-Western ethical theories and moral perspectives. The subsequent eight chapters are dedicated to applied ethics, focusing on topics such as euthanasia, abortion, bioethics, and business ethics. Eight closing appendices on Thiroux’s theory of Humanitarian Ethics and the application of this theory to moral problems further encourage students to focus on applying ethical theory in real-world scenarios.
