Timmons (U. of Arizona) combines classical and contemporary writings on moral theory in a reader designed as a core textbook for an ethics course focusing on theory or a supplementary text for an applied ethics course. The fifth edition updates the 2003 fourth edition and was prepared partly in response to input from instructors and partly in order to freshen the coverage of work in contemporary moral theory. There is no index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Classical and contemporary writings on moral theory introduce students to the study of ethics. Essays are organized according to type of moral theory and are preceded by an introductory chapter which provides a conceptual framework for studying ethics. The reader is suitable for ethics courses that focus on theory, and can serve as a supplementary text for applied ethics courses. It can also be used for the ethics component of an introductory philosophy course. This edition includes selections that reflect recent developments in virtue ethics. Timmons teaches philosophy at the University of Memphis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
