This comprehensive collection in moral philosophy is uniquely organized into three separate sections which cover the history of moral philosophy, modern ethical theory, and contemporary moral problems. It addresses the importance of moral philosophy's history, moving from classical values through medieval views to modern theories. The readings are reprinted, wherever possible, without omissions. An overview of our century's developments introduces the section on modern ethical theory, which also includes discussions of utilitarianism, Kantianism, egoism, relativism, and other issues. The importance of applied ethics is explained in the introduction to the third section, and subsequent readings present the give-and-take of current debates over abortion, euthanasia, famine relief, animal rights, the death penalty, and affirmative action.
