Description:

Ideal for courses in contemporary moral problems, applied ethics, and introduction to ethics, Disputed Moral Issues: A Reader, Third Edition, offers a unique pedagogical approach that bridges moral theory and applied ethics.Bringing together seventy-three engaging articles, it also includes an accessible Moral Theory Primer (Chapter 1) that outlines the guiding principles of moral theory, presents seven central moral theories--including social contract theory, which is new to this edition--and relates those theories to the issues debated in the articles. Chapter 2 presents seven readings in moral theory that correspond to the theories discussed in the Theory Primer. The remaining chapters (3-15) feature readings on a wide variety of contemporary moral issues. Each selection is enhanced by a host of pedagogical features, including concise summaries, reader cues referring to pertinent moral theories, and reading and discussion questions. A "Quick Guide to Moral Theories" at the front of the book and an extensive glossary of key terms are also included. A "User's Guide," which follows the preface, shows instructors how they can integrate moral theories and applied ethics into their courses.NEW TO THIS EDITION* Eighteen contemporary readings, including one new essay on moral theory, four selections in a new chapter on immigration, and five new readings in a revised chapter on war, terrorism, and torture* An updated Instructor's Manual and Test Bank on CD including chapter summaries and goals, quizzes, sample syllabi, sample PowerPoint-based presentations, and further resource lists* An updated Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/timmons featuring resources for students and instructors
