Making Ethical Ideas Accessible to Students!

With a clear presentation, Ethics: Theory and Practice educates readers about ethical theory and has them apply what they learn to specific classic and contemporary moral problems (lying, cheating, establishing ethical business practices, honoring ethical obligations in medicine, etc.).

Jacques P. Thiroux first wrote this text 1977 in order to educate readers about ethical theory and its applications in a way that beginning students could understand. The result was an accessible text that isn't too technical and doesn't plunge into complex readings without sufficient background. The text is fully updated with global issues and non-Western ethical views. Keith W. Krasemann now continues Thiroux's efforts of making ethical ideas accessible to students. Besides updating the foundations of the text, Krasemann incorporates new and relevant material, most of which is often unique only to this text.

I ordered this book for my classmates and she was very happy with it because it is still look good and she only paid more than 8$. The price was really good for this book. New one is too expensive.

I found this book a very interesting read. The most important aspect of the text is the wide ranging perceptions and ideologies of so many people in the world. I feel that as we try to understand the psychological make-up of the world and the decisions that we have made through the centuries then this id definitely the book to help assist in the review of the decisions that we have made.

This text book was easy to read with short concise chapters that did not drone on about the subject. It was fair and neither political in one way or another. Gave insight to ethics and what the real meaning is and how we use ethics in our society today and in the past.

… religion should not be the only basis for having good moral or ethics

 on September 4, 2014
By Gary Langton
Whenever I study a text about ethics I expect to hear that religion should not be the only basis for having good moral or ethics. Thiroux and Krasemann were no exception While I disagree with this opinion the authors did make a case that all can and should have ethical training and that it should be in the home as a start but should also come from our educators. Well written. If you’re religious don’t be offended. I wasn’t. The book was delivered on time and in good shape

The book came quickly. In regard to the chapters itself, they are easy to read and understand. The book goes into the history of ethics, which is not my favorite subject, but it does help me to understand ethics much easier.

Very through, very readable.

There are two things to consider with a textbook of this sort: how thoroughly does it cover the material, and how well does it manage to communicate that material to the reader? This book succeeds gloriously on both counts. Obviously, if the subject of Philosophy in general and Ethics in particular don’t interest you, you won’t enjoy this book. But if you have an interest in the subject, and need a basic intro to it, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better one.
