Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Elliott's ETHICAL CHALLENGES: BUILDING AN ETHICS TOOLKIT is an excellent text for all classes where undergraduate students or graduate candidates need to develop & understand a practical approach to ethics. It is especially useful for "professional ethics" classes such as engineering ethics or business ethics. Used with professional society codes of ethics, case studies, and student-centered discussion/writing it guides students in developing their own systematic approach for considering and acting upon moral problems they will face in their profession.

While this book would also be useful for mid-level moral philosophy courses that are not focused on a particular profession, that is not the focus of this review.

Students like and respond to Elliott's book. Chapters are laid out clearly, there is a clear progression from beginning to end, and students are left with a solid basis for what Elliott calls "systematic moral analysis."

"History of moral philosophy" purists will be disappointed by the lack of material on classical theoretical approaches such as Bentham's/Mill's utilitarianism or Kant's deontology. While I respect and teach these traditions, they cannot be covered in sufficient depth when combined with the practical/applied ethics that must be the focus of a single professional ethics course. Ideally, of course, all business, engineering, and other students would take a required introductory ethics course prior to their professional ethics course but given the emphasis in the curriculum on skills and tools over general education, that is unlikely.

This book is elementary to the point of being juvenile. There's nothing to learn here and there are silly, pointless exercises interspersed throughout. It reads like a high school kid was assigned to write a primer on ethics. Don't waste your time on this book.
