Covering the basic moral theories, both ancient and contemporary, Hinman (University of San Diego) brings a pluralist view to the study of ethics. Chapters concentrate on different types of theories, including religious morality, egoism, utilitarianism, theories of duty, theories of right, views of justice, virtue ethics, the ethics of diversity, and peace. The book serves as an introductory textbook on moral philosophy. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
