In this undergraduate-level reader, Reynolds provides an introduction to ethical theory by explaining its concepts through commentary by Western thinkers and also by showing how it applies to several hot- button contemporary issues. The result is a wide-ranging collection of opinions about ethical theory itself, sexual ethics, abortion, just war and pacifism, euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, capital punishment, environmental ethics and human cloning from no less than John Stuart Mill, Aristotle, Pope Paul VI, Judith Plaskow, Naomi Wolf, Martin Luther King Jr., Rabbi David A. Roberts, Ronald Bailey and a host of scholars, journalists, and those on the front lines who apply ethical theory every working day. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
