The text is written to provide user-friendly, broad, and balanced discussions of representative ethical arguments about key ethical issues that are prominent today. Learning is reinforced immediately with interactive exercises, essay topics, and a large bank of review questions. The ethical issue examined in each of the topic modules is accompanied by an audio drama that illustrates how the issue is approached in everyday life and conversation. Contextually placed excerpts from key philosophers, researchers, landmark court decisions, relevant legislation, and sacred texts, help students to get a glimpse of the history of debate on ethical issues as well as to appreciate the voice of those who have contributed to those debates. Extensive and easily searchable glossary and bibliography provide additional resources for students. The narration is a tremendous asset for students with learning differences and for those whose first language is not English.
