The newly updated Right and Wrong 2nd Edition is an accessible introduction to the major traditions in western philosophical ethics, written in a lively and engaging style. It is designed for entry–level ethics courses and includes real–life ethical scenarios chosen to appeal directly to students.

  • Greatly expanded and improved, this successful text introduces students to the major ethical traditions, and provides a simple methodology for resolving ethical dilemmas 
  • Treats teleological and deontological approaches to ethics as the two most important traditions, but now includes chapters on virtue ethics and the ethics of care 
  • The very accessible writing style speaks directly to students own experience 
  • Draws examples from three types of real–life ethical scenarios submitted by students: academic dishonesty, partying, and personal relationships 
  • Provides a concise treatment of this notoriously complex subject, perfect for entry–level ethics and applied ethics courses
