Description

Effectively address the major areas of ethical theory as well as a broad range of contemporary moral debates using MacKinnon's highly acclaimed ETHICS: THEORY AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES, Concise Edition. This book expertly balances ethical theory with today's most relevant moral issues, including torture, "partial birth" abortion, cloning, same-sex marriage, and Wikipedia and Google. Wildly popular for their insightful yet entertaining application of ethical dilemmas, the animated simulations that supplement the text on the accompanying online Resource Center are highlighted throughout this concise edition. The author's illuminating overviews make even complex philosophical concepts easy to read and understand. Comprehensive, clear-sighted introductions to general and specific areas of ethical debate cover major ethical theories, including feminist ethics and ethical relativism, before delving into issues ranging from euthanasia and sexual morality to war, stem cell research, environmental ethics and more.
