Long-hailed for skilled editing that enables students new to ethical theory to explore many seminal and complex primary sources that contribute to the canon of ethical theory, GREAT TRADITIONS IN ETHICS has become the standard historical anthology for introducing ethical theory. Combining informative chapter introductions that provide biographical, historical, and theoretical contexts; well-placed comments inserted within the readings; and ample, but not overwhelming, reading selections, this anthology will constructively challenge students to critically engage the most crucial ideas, thinkers, and readings in the history of ethical theory.
