Reason and Insight : Western and Eastern Perspectives on the Pursuit of Moral Wisdom - 2nd edition

Reason and Insight : Western and Eastern Perspectives on the Pursuit of Moral Wisdom (ISBN10: 0534505996; ISBN13: 9780534505998)
ISBN13: 978-0534505998
ISBN10: 0534505996

Summary: The aim of REASON AND INSIGHT is twofold: first, to provide a comprehensive, multicultural introduction to ethics that includes substantial selections from the main Western and Eastern philosophies and religious traditions, and second, to enable students to explore how these perspectives are applied to a range of contemporary moral problems. Beginning with an engaging, accessible introduction to fundamental metaethical issues, the text then delves into particular eth ...show moreical theories from both the Western and Eastern traditions. Finally, the relevance of these more abstract concerns is made more concrete in the concluding section that presents current scholarship devoted to applying these theories to pressing moral concerns with which students will be familiar. With REASON AND INSIGHT, students are exposed, in a single text, to all of the most important Western and Eastern moral theories and thereby are encouraged to reexamine critically their own moral perspectives in light of many other historically and/or culturally remote standpoints.

Benefits:

  • NEW! Three new sections, consisting of twelve essays on Technology, Media Ethics, and Business Ethics have been added to Part IV: Some Contemporary Moral Issues. Many of these essays were commissioned and written expressly for this edition.

  • NEW! A new translation of the "Analects" is included, as well as an updated translation of "Tao Te Ching".
  • Substantial reading selections encourage students to examine for themselves and in detail the key original sources in both the Western and Eastern moral traditions.
  • Introductions and discussion questions for every reading selection assist students in identifying and critically assessing the most crucial ideas found in each reading.
  • Profiles in Parts II and III help students to appreciate the historical and intellectual context of featured theorists.
  • Extensive applications of moral perspectives in Part IV lay bare the undeniable relevance of the foregoing ethical theories.
