Ethics: History, Theory, and Contemporary Issues, Fifth Edition, is an anthology providing a comprehensive introduction to moral philosophy, and is divided into three parts. The first provides a survey of important historical works from the Western canon, several of which appear in their entirety. The second part contains many of the most important papers in ethical theory from the twentieth century. The third is comprised of writings tackling many of the pressing moral problems of today, including abortion, euthanasia, and our treatment of animals. The instructor's guide is provided to help facilitate the teaching of this often difficult material, and includes summaries, essay and objective questions, and PowerPoint lecture outlines.
