Editorial Reviews

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

This book is good for an undergrad introductory class, particularly for non-philosophy-majors. However, if you want more depth, you should look elsewhere. It just skims over the different theories without going into a lot of detail.

This book provides a simple guide to the major ethical theories. Written at a high school level, it describes some complicated philosophies in easy to understand language. The chapter on non-Western ethical systems is very useful. Not quite adequate for a college level text because (1) it does not cover some important perspectives, (2) it does not go into much depth, and (3) it clearly has its own normative point a view--preempting students ability to come to their own conclusion.

The approach is clear, direct and simple. I really like the examples that are used to make the points clear. They build a nice bridge between both historical and modern perspectives.
