Ethics: The Fundamentals explores core ideas and arguments in moral theory by introducing students to different philosophical approaches to ethics, including virtue ethics, Kantian ethics, divine command theory, and feminist ethics.
The first volume in the new Fundamentals of Philosophy series.
Presents lively, real-world examples and thoughtful discussion of key moral philosophers and their ideas.
Constitutes an excellent resource for readers coming to the subject of ethics for the first time.
Do not listen to the review below, it’s coming from a bias and disingenuous religious viewpoint as in said example the moral considerations are still relevant as Abraham would have had no means of knowing the mind of god. The book expounds various approaches to ethics through different systems, giving hypothetical situations, historical background and general implementation. A very good introduction, the only detectable bias is in the dismissal of Moral Relativism at the beginning however it is a reasons dismissal, each section is given its fair weighting and serves as a good introduction.

I personally don’t think philosophy can be taught effectively out of a text book, but hey who am I? The book is what it was supposed to be and does the job according to my wife. If it were up to me I’d replace this with a stack of philosophical books that can sit on your bookshelf for a lifetime and make you look impressive at cocktail parties rather than a text book that you’ll never open again after that semester…
Great overview and foundation

This book provides a great overview of many popular and traditional ethical theories. Driver not only defines the theories but also provides real-life examples and a reflection on the strengths and weaknesses of both.
This is an excellent introductory text in ethical theory

This is an excellent introductory text in ethical theory. I use it when teaching undergraduate classes in ethics. Ignore the “1 star” review. That person has no understanding of ethics and the comments are poor.

Good price on an expensive college book. But probably never opened.
