Editorial Reviews

Review


"A Practical Companion to Ethics is an elegant book, both in concept and execution. Weston's approach to the material is engaging, and the book is clearly written. The examples are real and challenging."--Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin


"This book provides an outstanding bridge between the student and the study of ethics. It is brief and accessible and stimulates readers to pursue each topic further."--Daniel Campana, University of La Verne

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Karen L. Jett, CMA on March 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
I love the approach of this book. I've always thought and taught that ethics are action or behavior oriented. That it's not enough to have good intentions. Mr. Weston presents an excellent argument that ethics goes "beyond living out our values to thinking them through." He encourages everyone to look critically at the both sides of issues and look for commonalities that unite rather than differences that divide.

A Practical Companion to Ethics is not only a quick and easy read, it also provides concise examples that clearly illustrate points that are more complex. If you are even remotely interested in ethics or values or where you stand on larger issues you will find value in the many approaches that are logically organized within its 94 pages. - Karen L. Jett, CMA author of Grow Your People, Grow Your Business

Format: Paperback
I used this book as a basic introduction to Ethics with an introductory class. The easy to read and concise nature of the author was very helpful. The book wouldn't stand alone, but very useful as a supplementary text. Good sections in back for students and teachers. The section on Values Conflict is also good. I definitely would use this book again.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David Makinster on October 16, 2006
Format: Paperback
I use this book as a supplementary text for a few of the philosophy courses I teach. As an introductory-level, supplementary text, it is quite helpful. One of Weston's core themes is how to promote constructive dialog, and how to avoid dialectical dead-ends. In a world beset with simplistic moral dualism, this is a handy toolkit.
