Consider Ethics: Theory, Readings and Contemporary Issues brings major ethical theories to life by tying them to aspects of our day-to-day lives. Author Bruce Waller reveals how ethics play a part in personal relationships, business, cultural conflicts and more. By relating ethical theories to issues that arise naturally in modern life, the text prompts you draw your own conclusions.
The 4th Edition includes a new chapter on reflective equilibrium as a method of ethical inquiry. Expanded coverage of critical thinking facilitates discussion of controversial topics. And the author offers detailed new examinations of contemporary ethical issues relating to immigration and genetic enhancement.
