9780132302135: Ethics: Theory and Practice

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.

Review:

“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, 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.
