"Social Ethics: A Student's Guide" is an animated introduction to moral philosophy and the key ethical issues of today. In clear and direct language, Teichman provides a vigorous philosophical assessment of the arguments for and against euthanasia, the debate between advocates of "pro-life" and "pro-choice" in the question of abortion, the relationship between human beings and other animals, the possibility of machines thinking in the way that human beings think, the politics of the environment, and the nature and relevance of professional ethics. In so doing, Teichman offers a radical alternative to the current consequentialist orthodoxy in ethics. By placing fundamental importance on human life and human rights, "Social Ethics" makes a refreshing and distinctive contribution to contemporary ethical debate. It will serve as the ideal text for undergraduate courses in applied, practical and social ethics.
