SOCIAL AND PERSONAL ETHICS offers you a sound introduction to ethical theory and issues through engaging readings on today's most hotly debated topics including war, marriage and sexual morality, business ethics, and a new section on voting and democracy. Author William Shaw begins with a preliminary introduction to ethical theory that assumes no previous formal philosophy instruction and then moves on to explore a variety of real-world ethical issues, In all, the book is composed of 52 classic and contemporary articles (ten of which are new to this edition) as well as three cases studies. To ensure that you will find that the text is as accessible as it is relevant, Shaw edited every article with an eye toward readability and added marginal summaries to help you focus on important points and concepts.
