Closely examine the major areas of ethical theory as well as a broad range of contemporary moral debates using MacKinnon's acclaimed ETHICS: THEORY AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES, Seventh Edition. Illuminating overviews and a selection of readings from both traditional and contemporary sources make even complex philosophical concepts reader friendly. Comprehensive, clear-sighted introductions to general and specific areas of ethical debate cover major ethical theories, including feminist ethics, contract theory, and ethical relativism, before delving into issues ranging from euthanasia and sexual morality to war and globalization. A broader range of voices and philosophical traditions in this edition includes continental and non-Western philosophers, with new readings from prominent ethicists. Increased coverage of contemporary dilemmas highlights issues of widespread interest, including torture and terrorism, "partial birth" abortion, cloning, same-sex marriage, and global distributive justice. An innovative online resource center offers, among other things, animated simulations. These simulations allows you to personally engage with dilemmas and thought experiments commonly presented in introduction to ethics classes and provide instructors with a way to seamlessly integrate online assignments into the class.

Good value at Amazon; not bad for required reading.

Not bad for a textbook on a subject that can be very dense and mind-confusing at times; I seem to be following along with it much better than I had originally expected. Still, it’s a textbook, so I doubt you have much choice whether or not you’re buying it–I know that Amazon’s price on a new edition was about 75% of what my college bookstore was charging for *used* copies of the book.

Good condition, pretty good book.

Arrived in excellent condition and arrived promptly. The context of the book is not as difficult to get through since it makes modern day references (like the Hunger Games) but is still is long. Wouldn’t be able to get away with procrastinating these readings.
