Hello, Login. Visit Our Stores. Disputed Moral Issues by Mark Timmons. Carefully selected and edited for an undergraduate audience, the essays are organized into thirteen chapters that cover moral theory; sexual morality and marriage; pornography, hate speech, and censorship; drugs, gambling, and addiction; sexism, racism, and reparation; euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide; the ethical treatment of animals; abortion; cloning and genetic enhancement; the death penalty; war, terrorism, and torture; world hunger and poverty; and the environment, consumption, and global warming.

Striking a unique balance between moral theory and applied ethics, editor Mark Timmons provides students with an accessible Moral Theory Primer Chapter 1 , in which he outlines the guiding principles of moral theory, presents six central moral theories, and relates those theories to the issues debated in the articles. Chapter new to this edition--features six readings in moral theory that correspond to the theories presented in the primer.

Each of the remaining chapters is preceded by an introduction, and each selection is preceded by a brief summary and reader cues, which direct students to a specific section of the Moral Theory Primer in order to best help them understand the essay in question. A "Quick Guide to Moral Theories" appendix and an extensive glossary of key terms further enhance the text. A "User's Guide," which follows the preface, shows instructors how they can integrate moral theories and applied ethics into their courses.

This is the best text I've found in the last half dozen years. The selections are very well chosen and presented. I think the author's writing style is excellent. It is clear and direct, and the author deals with sophisticated positions without either dumbing them down or expecting too much of the reader.

The greatest strengths are Timmons' 'Primer' as well as his introductions to the chapters. The book provides an overview of the most important contemporary moral problems, and it has very well thought out sets of opposing views regarding each major topic. It lends itself very nicely to class discussion, and to encouraging students' interests and skills in thinking critically and writing rigorously about these issues.

It is the best of the four readers I have used in the last six years. The editor's introduction and section introductions are particularly strong, both in terms of clarity and relevance.

The selections are also excellent. The book has the articles that I like, and I feel confident about relying on the editor's introductions to supplement the material in a way that I think is clearly explained, accurate, and not condescending. The anthology covers a broad spectrum of moral issues and contains many of the 'classics' in the field. The reading selections for each topic are well-balanced in terms of liberal, moderate, and conservative views.

The moral theory primer at the beginning of the book is excellent. I like the clear and careful way that Timmons relates the readings to the moral theories discussed in the first chapter. He shows that moral theories really are helpful in thinking about contemporary moral issues and that the fundamental themes of the major theories influence the writers he selects. Timmons is an excellent writer. The book is very clear, very well-organized, and nicely illustrated with examples.
