ETHICAL ISSUES IN THE COURTS: A COMPANION TO PHILOSOPHICAL ETHICS is an invaluable resource in exploring the real-world intersections of our legal system and a variety of pressing ethical problems. Accessibly, it reveals the ways in which the courts have ruled on a range of issues, including: abortion; euthanasia; assisted suicide; educating children; sex and marriage; gay rights; war, peace and pacifism; environmental rights; animal rights; freedom of expression; religious freedom; racial discrimination; affirmative action; sex discrimination; capital punishment; business ethics; computer ethics. Composed of excerpts from 73 landmark court decisions, on ethical issues, along with helpful discussion questions and study guides, this book addresses a set of ideas pertinent to undergraduate studies in applied ethics, critical thinking, the philosophy of law, and political science.
