Overview

Is there such a thing as right and wrong? If so, what makes one action right and another wrong? Are there moral laws that apply universally, or are certain actions right in one place but not another? Ethics: The Fundamentals explores these and many other related questions by introducing students to different philosophical approaches to ethics, including moral relativism, virtue ethics, Kantian ethics, divine command theory, and feminist ethics. Lively everyday examples and thoughtful discussion of key moral philosophers and their ideas make this first volume of Blackwell’s Fundamentals of Philosophy series an important resource for readers coming to the subject for the first time.
