Written by one of today's foremost ethics teachers, this text not only provides an introduction to the main traditions in ethical thought?such as virtue ethics, utilitarianism, and deontology?but also offers a conceptual framework of ethical pluralism for understanding the relationship among these various theories. Including unique features such as a preparatory "ethical inventory" that gauges a student's initial ethical outlook and interviews with many leading ethical theorists that highlight key ethical principles and these thinkers' contributions to contemporary ethical debates, ETHICS: A PLURALISTIC APPROACH TO MORAL THEORY is a book very much of its times. Through its three prior editions, it has assisted thousands of students to find their ways competently, compellingly, and critically to the heart of today's most important ethical debates.
