Booknews

A textbook for a course that combines theoretical and applied ethics, a rather recent concept. Re-formatted and augmented from the 1989 edition, includes a section of readings from philosophers who illustrate the development of western ethics, including Plato, Kant, and Mill; a section in which contemporary philosophers describe the emerging ethical theories of liberalism, communitarianism, and feminism; and a section addressing such issues as AIDS, censorship and hate speech, abortion, euthanasia, affirmative action, and the death penalty. Includes a glossary without pronunciation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
