Description: Introducing Ethics: A Critical Thinking Approach with Readings combines guiding commentary and questions with a rich selection of concise, carefully edited, and accessible readings on ethical theory and contemporary moral issues. This unique introduction shows students how to do philosophy by first analyzing texts--identifying ethical positions and the arguments that support them--and then evaluating the truth of those positions and the soundness of the arguments. In doing so, it provides students with a uniquely engaging introduction to ethics that also hones their critical thinking skills.FEATURES* A unique Unit 1 gives students the conceptual tools to "do" philosophy with coverage of logic, arguments, moral reasoning, and reading and writing philosophy* Extensive coverage of the three main areas of ethics--metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics--addresses issues often ignored by other texts, including ethics vs. science, moral responsibility, moral vs. legal issues, torture, terrorism, and more* Unit and chapter introductions outline major themes and issues and explain why they matter* Reading questions precede the essays and focus students' studying on key points, while discussion questions follow the readings and help students move into the evaluation phase* "Argument Reconstruction Exercises" after each reading provide practice in identifying the premises and conclusions in the essays* An Instructor's Manual with Test Bank on CD is available to adopters* A Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/mcbrayer provides all the material contained on the CD along with student resources (all of this material can also be made available for any Learning Management System)
