Contemporary Moral Arguments (ISBN10: 0199922268; ISBN13: 9780199922260)
ISBN13: 978-0199922260
ISBN10: 0199922268

Summary: Taking a unique approach that emphasizes careful reasoning, this cutting-edge reader is structured around twenty-seven landmark arguments that have provoked heated debates on current ethical issues.Contemporary Moral Arguments: Readings in Ethical Issues,Second Edition, opens with an extensive two-chapter introduction to moral reasoning and moral theories that provides students with the background necessary to analyze the arguments in the following chapters. Chapters
3-12 present seventy-six readings that are organized--in the conventional way--into ten topical areas: abortion; drugs and autonomy (new to this edition); euthanasia and assisted suicide; genetic engineering and cloning; the death penalty; war, terrorism, and torture; pornography; economic justice and health care; animal rights and environmental duties; and global obligations to the poor.

Offering a special feature not found in other anthologies, the selections are also organized in an unconventional way, by argument, so that students can more easily see how philosophers have debated each other on these critical issues.Each argument opens with an introduction that outlines the argument's key points, provides context for it, and reviews some of the main responses to it. Each introduction is followed by two to four essays that present the argument's classic statement, critiques and defenses of it, and related debates.

Contemporary Moral Argumentsincorporates more pedagogical features than any other reader, including:

*Essay questions--ideal for writing assignments--after each of the twenty-seven argument sections

*Four types of boxes throughout: Facts and Figures, Public Opinion, Legalities, and Time Lines

* A list ofkey termsat the end of each chapter, all defined in theglossary,andsuggestions for further reading
