Through the analysis of forty ethical dilemmas drawn from real-life situations, Ethics in Action guides the reader through a process of moral deliberation that leads to the resolution of a variety of moral dilemmas. * Fosters critical thinking by evaluating the reasons people give to support their choices and actions * Challenges the paradigm of moral relativism that often impedes efforts to resolve moral dilemmas * Incorporates international perspectives often lacking in texts published for a U.S. audience
