Overview

Ideals and Responsibilities: Ethical Judgment and Social Identity / Edition 1

This singly-authored text brings a much more integrated view of morality to life for students, drawing them into the process of ethical judgement. Organized by the idea that ethical responsibility involves the movement between ideals and decisions in everyday life, the text begins with five examples that immediately engage students. Abstract theory is treated as an element of the decision process, not as a disparate chapter or section as in typical texts. With sensitivity to the considerations of non-western, feminist, and continental philosophers, Ross explores the factors, nuances and risks of the moral decision process.
