MORALITY IN PRACTICE uniquely engages students in critical analysis of a wide range of positions on today’s moral problems by presenting each chapter in two sections: Alternative Views and Practical Applications. The readings in the Alternative Views section present radically opposed viewpoints on today’s most important moral problems. The introductions to each section as well as the selection and arrangement of the readings help you grapple with crude relativism with a goal of demonstrating that some views do turn out to be more defensible than others. The selections in the Practical Applications section of each chapter offer court opinions, resolutions and declarations from various international organizations, and articles which all demonstrate how the broader issues introduced in the Alternative Views section play out in specific practical situation. The general introduction also shows how all the moral problems considered in the anthology are interconnected, such that a solution to any one of these moral problem requires a solution to the others as well.
