An Introduction to Ethics
This text is appropriate for introductory ethics and moral issues courses, offered through most philosophy departments at colleges and universities throughout Canada. This text takes an issues-based (or problem-based) approach to ethics, with a main focus on answering questions about the place of ethics in society and nature. Although ethical theory is discussed, it is not emphasized. The emphasis, instead, is on engaging students in key ethical issues, using theory as a background for the main purpose of addressing basic questions of ethics and morality. The aim is to encourage students to appreciate the practical implication of ethical decisions in their lives. An Introduction to Ethics is intended for students who are new to the study of philosophy and who are non-majors, although the content is also suitable as an introduction for students who plan to major in philosophy.
