Summary

SOCIAL AND PERSONAL ETHICS offers you a sound introduction to ethical theory and issues with via accessible readings on many of the most debated topics of our times-including drug use, hostage interrogation, war, abortion, and capital punishment, among others. Author William Shaw begins with a preliminary introduction to ethical theory that assumes no previous formal philosophy instruction and then moves on to explore a variety of real-world ethical issues. In all, the book is composed of 51 classic and contemporary articles (ten of which are new to this edition) as well as three cases studies. And, to ensure that you?ll find the text as accessible as it is relevant, every article in this edition was edited for readability-resulting in the most student-friendly edition to date.
