I am a student, a senior, and find this text to be quite cumbersome to read. Each section is very long winded and because it is a compilation of essays and arguments written by various ethicists during various time periods, the writing styles vary A LOT. More plain language summaries of each case would be helpful. On the plus side, Munson does a great job briefing the student who has little prior experience studying philosphy or ethics. Major theories and principles are well explained and helped me critically analyze the ethical implications of the cases (when I could stay awake reading).Was this review helpful?
