This new edition of The Ethical Process serves as an excellent supplement for courses in applied ethics and controversial issues. Employing a "workbook" presentation, the text provides students with a method of understanding the ethical dimension of issues and for making ethical decisions. The text's method helps students identify and sort out competing values and assumptions and critically examine their normative significance.
