Review:


"This text is perfect for students who have no background in philosophy." — Dr. Marlene San Miguel Groner, SUNY Farmingdale




"I think the text is an excellent one. The information is well organized. Students can easily understand the different types of theories. The outlines at the end of each chapter are especially helpful .... Students with little or no background in ethics find it easy to understand and really appreciate the application of theories to real-world problems." — Beth Rene' Roepnack, DeVry University, Georgia


From the Back Cover:

Jacques P. Thiroux first published ETHICS: THEORY AND PRACTICE in 1977 in order to educate readers about ethical theory and to have them apply what they learn to specific problems (e.g., taking human life; lying, cheating, stealing, and breaking promises; establishing ethical practices in business; honoring ethical obligations in medicine; and so on). Together with case studies written by the author, ETHICS: THEORY AND PRACTICE continues to provide students with a solid foundation in understanding classic and contemporary moral problems.
