9780072840766: Ethics for Everyday with Free Ethics PowerWeb

Telling lies, gossiping, practicing adultery, gambling, smoking, using offensive language, corporal punishment of one’s children, copying copyrighted material – these are moral issues that affect, and often deeply affect, our daily lives. Everyday Ethics is a collection of readings devoted to ethical problems like these that confront ordinary people in everyday life. The anthology covers the areas of communication, sex, parents and children, animals, money matters, and body and environment. Nearly all selections are from the late 1980s and the 1990s.

From the Publisher:

COMPING GUIDELINE: Look for Introduction to Ethics courses that concentrate on 'Practical Ethics' or 'Applied Ethics' vs. ones that cover either classical philosophers (Aristotle, Kant, Mill - as our Solomon, Morality and the Good Life does) and/or traditional social ethics topics (abortion, the death penalty, physician-assisted suicide - as our Mappes-Zembaty, Social Ethics does).
BOOK'S POSITION: A collection of readings devoted to ethical problems that confront ordinary people in daily, everyday life.
CLEAR ORGANIZATION: Areas covered include communication, sex, parents and children, animals, money matters, and body and environment.
CURRENT: Nearly all selections are from the late 1980s and the 1990s.
