Beschreibungen

The newly updated Right and Wrong 2nd Edition is an accessible introduction to the major traditions in western philosophical ethics, written in a lively and engaging style. It is designed for entry-level ethics courses and includes real-life ethical scenarios chosen to appeal directly to students. Greatly expanded and improved, this successful text introduces students to the major ethical traditions, and provides a simple methodology for resolving ethical dilemmas  Treats teleological and deontological approaches to ethics as the two most important traditions, but now includes chapters on virtue ethics and the ethics of care  The very accessible writing style speaks directly to students’ own experience  Draws examples from three types of real-life ethical scenarios submitted by students: academic dishonesty, partying, and personal relationships  Provides a concise treatment of this notoriously complex subject, perfect for entry-level ethics and applied ethics courses
