About the Author

Judith A. Boss earned her PhD in 1990 from Boston University, her MA from Dalhousie University in Canada in 1971, and her BA from the University of Western Australia in 1969. Prior to pursing a career in academia, she worked as a writer/researcher for the Nova Scotia Museum. She was on the faculty of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Rhode Island from 1988 to 1995 and worked as Assistant Director of Curriculum Affairs at Brown University School of Medicine until 2004 when she "retired" to return to full-time writing and became a visiting scholar with the philosophy department at Brown University. She continued, until last year, to teach one course a semester at the University of Massachusetts. In addition to her philosophical interests, she completed a MS in Human Development at URI in 1991 and has led faculty workshops and written extensively on the topic of college student development. She was recipient of a URI Foundation Grant to study the effects of community service learning on students' moral development and has served as a grant application reviewer for the Corporation for National Service. The author of nine books, her publications include ANALYZING MORAL ISSUES and ETHICS FOR LIFE, both with McGraw-Hill. Her textbook THiNK, also with McGraw-Hill, just came out in 2009. She is published in, among other, The Journal of Moral Education, Public Affairs Quarterly, The Journal of Medical Ethics, Academic Medicine, Educational Theory, Free Inquiry, and The Journal of Experiential Education. During her spare time she volunteers with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services and is active in the Appalachian Mountain Club. An avid traveler, she has traveled with students from the University of Rhode Island and Brown Medical School to work with underserved, indigenous people in Guatemala and Mexico. Her favorite travel destination, however, is Antarctica, and she is currently looking for a publisher for a suspense/thriller she wrote that is set in Antarctica. She lives in Rhode Island with her daughter, son-in-law and twin granddaughters. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Ms. Boss has written a textbook which analyzes moral issues that have no easy solutions. She helps the reader to understand how people reach moral conclusions...she disects the foundation of moral thought...she gives foundations of how ethical thought are contructed from family, religious, and cultural integrations. The remaining chapters describe case studies (drug legalization, euthanasia, abortion, hate speech, etc.) which has our society grappling for solutions, with opinions (pro and con) from different modern philosophers and university professors. There are critical thinking and discussion questions which guide the reader to understand contemporary moral dilimmas. There is also an appendix which helps the reader to write and debate moral issues. This textbook is relatively easy to understand, however the contributing authors ideas may be challenging to comphrend. This is a great textbook and reference guide to other ethical authors. In a nutshell, this textbook facilitates developing critical thinking skills. This is the first textbook I own which is battered and "dogeared". Ms. Boss has accomplished the feat of making moral contemporary issues an approachable mountain.

I really enjoyed this book that I had to read for a morals class. Each chapter discussed a different issue (abortion, marriage, war, etc.) and it included all sides of the debates including the history, court decisions, and philosophical viewpoints. The chapters had a perfect amount of information and were a perfect length.
