The influential readings and engaging topics in VICE AND VIRTUE IN EVERYDAY LIFE explain why college students have loved this book for years. As you read through this selection of classical and contemporary readings, you'll explore topics that relate to character, personal integrity and social morality, such as the abortion debate, our moral duties to the world's poor, and radical environmentalism. Readings on factory farming and vegetarianism are also included as the book examines our duties to animals and nature, and newly added selections from Robert Solomon and the Book of Job help you examine the meaning of life. While the readings consistently represent different points of view, the book also challenges you to go beyond theoretical applications and contingent circumstances, to cultivate virtuous decision-making in your own life.
