An anthology with a mix of classic and contemporary readings that presents the relevant issues of our time. After introducing students in Part I to the main theories on ethical judgements and moral responsibility by such thi
nkers as Kant, Mill, Foot, Blackburn, and Strawson (among others), Parts II and III demonstrate these theories in action by presenting a wide range of readings on issues that are relevant to today's students such as euthanasia, capital punishment, animal rights, and genetic engineering

Helpful apparatus. Every chapter ends with questions for discussion and a list of suggested readings, providing students with an opportunity for further study.

  • Literary selections now open each Part, engaging students immediately with the issues that will be confronted--in Part I, an excerpt from Sophocles's Philoctetes raises the issue of individual human rights vs. the needs of the community, Tom Godwin's "The Cold Equation" introduces Part II and dramatizes the dilemmas of taking human life,andin Part III, an excerpt from Aldous Huxley's Brave New World warns of the dangers of social engineering.
