Everyday Morality: An Introduction to Applied Ethics 4th Edition

Mike W. Martin

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 2001, 1995, 1989
  • 350 Pages

Overview

EVERYDAY MORALITY brings ethics to bear on a wide array of everyday practical concerns. Written in a clear and engaging way and rich in practical illustrations and applications, the book takes up both standard topics such as abortion and euthanasia, but also a wide array of often neglected topics such as self-respect, self-deception, addictions, money, and community service. EVERDAY MORALITY, above all, will help you students gain a critical outlook with respect to the effects of moral character that permeate everyday life: virtues and vices, commitments and attitudes, personal relationships and community involvement, right and wrong conduct.

Mike W. Martin, Chapman University

Mike W. Martin is Professor of Philosophy at Chapman University (Orange, California). He is the author of many articles in applied ethics, and he is author, coauthor, or editor of ten books, most recently FROM MORALITY TO MENTAL HEALTH: VIRTUE AND VICE IN A THERAPEUTIC CULTURE (from Oxford University Press).
  • This book is now supported by two new technologies. When adopted along with the book, TurnItIn offers an efficient way of preventing plagiarism in student papers, while JoinIn, an interactive classroom response system, offers instructors a way of quickly garnering students' positions on a number of ethical concerns and will keep students in even the largest ethics classes engaged in lectures.
  • While several chapters have received substantial rewriting and updating�namely, the chapters on money, work, and community service�this edition also includes two entirely new chapters: Chapter 12, "Terrorism and Evil," and Chapter 24, "Computers and Community."
  • Every chapter ends with a summary, an interdisciplinary bibliography, and a detailed set of Discussion Topics to aid student comprehension of the most key points they encounter in the text.
