"The inclusion of women authors is a great selling point for me, as I believe that the issue of the representation of women in philosophy is a serious problem. I would absolutely recommend Exploring Ethics to any instructor looking to adopt a new ethics textbook. It is a compact, affordable, and well-rounded introduction to the philosophical study of ethics."--Heath Allen, Oklahoma State University
"Exploring Ethics is an accessible, affordable anthology that provides an excellent balance of classical and contemporary works in ethical theory and applied ethics. The online student resources are really fantastic."--Nathan Stout, Tulane University
"Exploring Ethics far exceeds other ethics textbooks. I have no idea how it is so much cheaper than other options. I tell my students to buy--not rent--this book, because it will be a great resource for years to come."--Daniel Gluch, California State University, Sacramento
"This is a concise, well-edited anthology that contains many of the essential classics. The thoughtfully chosen selections are very engaging, and the helpful questions at the end of each article will further increase student engagement. The online student resources, including quizzes and flashcards, are also very useful. Finally, this text is very reasonably priced."--Elaine Yoshikawa, Arizona State University
"Exploring Ethics is an excellent introductory anthology for courses in introduction to normative ethics or introduction to applied ethics. The readings are at an appropriate length and are pitched towards an intro class. Further, and perhaps most importantly, the price point cannot be beat."--Elizabeth Scarbrough, Florida International University
