The Fundamentals of Ethics

Second Edition

Russ Shafer-Landau

In The Fundamentals of Ethics, Second Edition, author Russ Shafer-Landau employs a uniquely engaging writing style to introduce students to the essential ideas of moral philosophy. Offering more comprehensive coverage of the good life, normative ethics, and metaethics than any other text of its kind, this book also addresses issues that are often omitted from other texts. The second edition features discussion questions at the end of every chapter; new, real-life extended examples; greatly expanded coverage of moral rights and of membership in the moral community; and a new discussion of skepticism about morality in the Introduction. This edition is also enhanced by an Instructor's Manual and Testbank on CD and a Companion Website at
