Product Description

From the Back Cover

"This third edition of Ethics in Practice introduces new areas of controversy in applied and practical ethics, while most assuredly remaining the single best text one can go to for extensive coverage by some of the area’s major figures. Alongside coverage of familiar ethical issues such as abortion, free speech, and affirmative action, this revised and expanded edition includes entirely new sections on ethical theory, and war and terrorism, with engaging and accessible intros from the editor. The structure of the book facilitates use by a wide variety of courses and is friendly to the styles of individual instructors. In the end, an anthology of applied ethics must be judged on the philosophical significance of its essays, and whether or not its essays are representative of the excellent material that can now be found in the field. The third edition of Ethics in Practice succeeds on both counts. A great many of the people who currently influence the different issues are featured herein, and with pieces of distinctive philosophical merit. These essays collectively give an excellent perspective on the quality of work that can be found today – admittedly, one often has to look hard – in applied or practical ethics. I strongly recommend this book." ––R. G. Frey, Bowling Green State University

This book is brilliant! I used it for my Applied Ethics module and it was extremely helpful. It covers a whole range of ethical subjects and has lots of articles for each subject, with a mix of points of view.

This was a required text for my university philosophy course. The anthology is incredibly comprehensive, with essays on a wide range of topics, some of which I did not require but were interesting nonetheless. Worthwhile and very useful. I found the book, and the introductions to each subject in particular, very readable, which is often a difficulty when buying philosophy books!

This book made me rethink a lot of my opinions that pertain to Contemporary Moral Issues. The articles presented in the text are very representative of all the different thought approaches of many things that effect our lives.

Very satisfied with the product 2 April 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Had to buy this for my Philosophy class, and it is actually a pretty great book. I can see why the professor wanted us to buy it. Great selection of very famous and informative readings. Gives you a wide range of philosophies.

Holds up very well in my backpack, rather smaller size, still a little thick, but fits well compared to other hardback books, and a very very reasonable price. Arrived in perfect condition, much better than some other books I've rented online.

This book was required as a textbook, otherwise the sheer thickness of it would have scared me off for sure.
