Vice & Virtue in Everyday Life: Introductory Readings in Ethics

Harcourt College Publishers (1997)


" Vice and virtue in everyday life is a bestseller in college ethics because students find the readings both personally engaging and intellectually challenging. Under the guidance of classical and modern writers on morality, students using this textbook come to grips with moral issues of everyday life. They discover that some currently fashionable approaches to morality, such as egoism and relativism, have long histories. They also become aquainted with the debates and criticisms of various moral doctrines, learning central ethical theories and methods for reasoning about moral issues in the process." -- Back cover.
