A Concise Introduction to Ethics (Illustrated Edition) – eBook PDF
A Concise Introduction to Ethics, Illustrated Edition, (PDF) provides a condensed and exceptionally well-written introduction to the important moral theories. Based on Russ Shafer-Landau’s best-selling primer on ethical theory, The Fundamentals of Ethics, this concise volume retains the longer one’s content advantage over competing ebooks by addressing issues that other textbooks neglect, including the natural law, good life (value theory), and prima facie duties. It also includes discussion questions and case studies at the end of every chapter, giving college students the chance to apply ethical theories to real-world moral problems.
A perfect companion to Shafer-Landau’s anthology, The Ethical Life, this volume’s brief size and low price make A Concise Introduction to Ethics a perfect complement to any course where it is important that students comprehend moral theories.
“A Concise Introduction to Ethics is of moderate length, yet its scale is comprehensive for its size. I can find no competing ebook from another publisher that is better.” — Theodore Gracyk, Minnesota State University
“The writing is crisp and clear, the exposition is precise and careful, and the depth and breadth of coverage is excellent, especially for such a short textbook. It’s hard to visualize a more accessible introduction to moral theory.” — Philip Robbins, University of Missouri
“A Concise Introduction to Ethics is brief enough to be a supplementary textbook, but with enough detail to genuinely include the central topics in moral theory. If you want to include a unit on moral theory in your course, you aren’t going to do any better than this.” — Bob Fischer, Texas State University
“Shafer-Landau’s introduction is remarkably well-written; it provides clear explanations for often-complex theories with illustrative examples drawn from ordinary life. He carefully notes the strengths and weaknesses of every theory and provides probing questions for students’ reflection.” — Max Latona, St. Anslem College
