Description of the book "Disputed Moral Issues: A Reader / Edition 1":
Ideal for courses in contemporary moral problems, applied ethics, and introduction to ethics, Disputed Moral Issues: A Reader, Third Edition, offers a unique pedagogical approach that bridges moral theory and applied ethics.
Bringing together seventy-three engaging articles, it also includes an accessible Moral Theory Primer (Chapter 1) that outlines the guiding principles of moral theory, presents seven central moral theories—including social contract theory, which is new to this edition—and relates those theories to the issues debated in the articles. Chapter 2 presents seven readings in moral theory that correspond to the theories discussed in the Theory Primer. The PDF remaining chapters (3-15) feature readings on a wide variety of contemporary moral issues. Each selection is enhanced by a host of pedagogical features, including concise summaries, reader cues referring to pertinent moral theories, and reading and discussion questions. A "Quick Guide to Moral Theories" at the front of the book and an extensive glossary of key terms are also included. A "User's Guide," which follows the preface, shows instructors how they can integrate moral theories and applied ethics into their courses.
