A Practical Companion to Ethics

Fifth Edition

Anthony Weston

  • Challenging and relevant end-of-chapter exercises
  • Brief text boxes that define key terms and review core strategies
  • The optimistic tone and brisk pace of the narrative provide an entertaining and intelligent guide to "everday" morality
  • Appendix outlining tips for effective writing in ethics

New to this Edition:

  • Revisions and updates to every chapter tie this volume more closely to the author's comprehensive textbook, A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox, Fourth Edition (OUP, 2017)
  • A revised Chapter 3, An Eye for Moral Values, takes a more practical approach by covering the ethics of care and by looking extensively at broader families of moral values
  • The writing guide previously embedded in Chapter 6 is now expanded and restructured as an Appendix
  • Discussion on emerging Earth ethics added to Chapter 6
