From the Back Cover

Discover the foundations of ethics and how to apply them to your everyday life

What's the difference between right and wrong? Do you know John Stuart Mill from Thomas Hobbes? This helpful guide gets you comfortable with the centuries-old study of ethical philosophy quickly and effectively! In plain English, it examines ethical thought, explains the writings and theories of great thinkers, and so much more.

  • Get a handle — understand the basic issues and questions of ethics, and why you should care about integrating ethics into your own life

  • Dig up the dirt — investigate whether human nature and ethics are related and delve into the connections (and disconnects) between ethics and religion and ethics and science

  • Look behind the curtain — get familiar with the key ethical theories you need to know, such as virtue ethics, Kantian ethics, and utilitarianism

  • Apply, apply, apply — discover the many ways ethics has been applied to the real world, from biomedical ethics to human rights and everything in between
