Summary

Make ethical ideas accessible to students
REVEL™ for 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.

REVEL is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, REVEL is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: REVEL is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone REVEL access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use REVEL.
