Ideal for introductory ethics courses, The Moral Life: An Introductory Reader in Ethics and Literature, Fifth Edition, brings together an extensive and varied collection of ninety-one classical and contemporary readings on ethical theory and practice. Integrating literature with philosophy in an innovative way, this unique anthology uses literary works to enliven and make concrete the ethical theory or applied issues addressed. It also emphasizes the personal dimension of ethics, which is often ignored or minimized in ethics anthologies. The readings are enhanced by chapter introductions, study questions, suggestions for further reading, and biographical sketches.
The fifth edition adds ten new readings, eight of which appear in two new chapters: Feminist Ethics and the Ethics of Care and Global Economic Justice. An updated Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/pojman provides self-quizzes, essay questions, and helpful links for students and reading summaries, a test bank, and PowerPoint-based lecture slides for instructors.
"The Moral Life is the best book I've ever used to teach introductory moral philosophy, anywhere. In fact, it is quite common for my students to report to me that they have kept the book after the course has ended because they are fascinated by the various readings."--Neil Delaney, University ofNotre Dame
"Enticing, fresh, and classic."--Annette Mendola, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville
"An incredible book. I would use no other. Students love it as much as I do."--Patricia Wheeler, Woodland Community College
"The organization is stellar and the selections are extremely unique. The test bank is truly incredible." --Charles J. Horn, University of Kentucky
