Overview

Ethics in the First Person is a comprehensive guide to teaching and learning practical ethics that not only provides the historical context for the study of practical ethics in the twenty-first century but also focuses on the teaching and learning of practical ethics as a first-person, present-tense activity. Practical ethics instruction can bring about more sophisticated decision making only if students and teachers remain cognizant of their own values, beliefs, and processes for thinking through ethical issues. The book closes with an analysis of how ethics serves as a bridge across cultures. A resource for teachers of ethics across the curriculum, this book may also be used as a supplemental text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, or as a guide for self-study.
