From the Back Cover
"A Practical Guide to Ethics
is precisely what it claims to be. Written with an eye to application, it discusses ethical decision-making procedures in a thorough and accessible way. One especially attractive feature of the book is that it not only emphasizes the ethical dimension of communication, it shows readers how to be effective, ethically responsible participants in the communicative process." --Daniel E. Wueste, Director, Robert J. Rutland Institute for Ethics, Clemson University; President, Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum
"All philosophers know the joy of theory. But to have any effect on improving the human condition, ethical theory must be brought into practice. Manning and Stroud do a wonderful job showing how ethical theory ought to be integrated to everyday life. A Practical Guide to Ethics
outlines how the tools of philosophy can be used to address the moral quandaries of home, the workplace, and the public square as family members, colleagues, and citizens." --David R. Keller, Director, Center for the Study of Ethics, Utah Valley State College
