For undergraduate courses in ethics.
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 is an accessible text that isn't too technical and doesn't plunge into complex readings without sufficient background.

“This text is perfect for students who have no background in philosophy.”
-Dr. Marlene San Miguel Groner, SUNY Farmingdale
“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 Reopnack, DeVry University, GeorgiaFrom the Back Cover:
ETHICS: THEORY AND PRACTICE was first published in 1977 and now is into its SEVENTH EDITION. The book is about evenly divided into the two title topics, theory and practice, so that students are not only enlightened on ethical theory, but are encouraged to apply the learned theory to specific ethical problems (e.g. taking human life; lying, cheating, stealing, and breaking promises; business and environmental ethics, and bioethics, etc.). This book is very student- and instructor-friendly in that:
