EVERYDAY MORALITY brings ethics to bear on a wide array of everyday practical concerns. Written in a clear and engaging way and rich in practical illustrations and applications, the book takes up both standard topics such as abortion and euthanasia, but also a wide array of often neglected topics such as self-respect, self-deception, addictions, money, and community service. EVERDAY MORALITY, above all, will help you students gain a critical outlook with respect to the effects of moral character that permeate everyday life: virtues and vices, commitments and attitudes, personal relationships and community involvement, right and wrong conduct.
