Description - Ethics by Dr. Piers Benn
This introduction to ethics judiciously combines moral theory with applied ethics to give an opportunity for students to develop acute thinking about ethical matters.;The author begins by motivating a concern for moral discourse by dispelling often met objections over relativism and subjectivity. By interweaving normative and meta-ethical considerations, a convincing modern account of moral thinking emerges.;Moral theories - consequentialism, Kantianism, contractualism - are explained and illustrated in a way that holds the reader's attention, and students of ethics will take away a perceptive and practical understanding of the nature of moral reasoning and an ability, on such matters, to think afresh for themselves.
