Closely examine the major areas of ethical theory as well as a broad range of contemporary moral debates using MacKinnon’s ETHICS: THEORY AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES—CONCISE EDITION, 2E. Illuminating overviews and frank language make even complex philosophical concepts reader-friendly. Comprehensive, clear-sighted introductions to general and specific areas of ethical debate cover major ethical theories, including feminist ethics, contract theory, and ethical relativism, before delving into issues ranging from euthanasia and sexual morality to war and globalization. Increased coverage of contemporary dilemmas highlights issues of widespread interest, including torture and terrorism, "partial birth" abortion, cloning, same-sex marriage, and global distributive justice. An innovative online resource center offers, among other things, animated simulations. These simulations allow you to personally engage with dilemmas and thought experiments commonly presented in introduction to ethics classes and seamlessly integrate online assignments into the class.
