9780199997237: The Fundamentals of Ethics

In The Fundamentals of Ethics, Third Edition, author Russ Shafer-Landau employs a uniquely engaging writing style to introduce students to the essential ideas of moral philosophy. Offering more comprehensive coverage of the good life, normative ethics, and metaethics than any other text of its kind, this book also addresses issues that are often omitted from other texts, such as the doctrine of doing and allowing, the doctrine of double effect, ethical particularism, the desire-satisfaction theory of well-being, and moral error theory. Shafer-Landau carefully reconstructs and analyzes dozens of arguments in depth, at a level that is understandable to students with no prior philosophical background. The text is supplemented by an online Instructor's Manual and Computerized Test Bank and a Companion Website with student self-quizzes and additional resources.

Ideal for courses in introductory ethics and contemporary moral problems, this book can be used as a stand-alone text or with the author's companion reader, The Ethical Life: Fundamental Readings in Ethics and Moral Problems, Third Edition.

Review :


"This is truly an exceptional book. The writing is clean, accessible, and even fun to read! Students love it. We can get right into the issues at hand, with no time wasted trying to figure out what the author said/meant. This is hands-down the best introductory volume for undergraduate level ethics I have ever encountered."--Kelly Heuer, Georgetown University


"There is nothing that comes close in terms of accessibility. I have recommended this book to many a colleague. It's succinct and accessible without sacrificing the integrity of the arguments; it's a model of how to do--and write--good philosophy, it's inexpensive, and students actually seem to learn from it. What more could you ask for?"--Bob Fischer, Texas State University


"The greatest strength is the clarity of the writing. The relevant theories and concepts are presented in an accessible manner to students who have no background in philosophy. The ancillaries are fantastic. The text is clear, comprehensive, and inexpensive, with additional aids online that will assist students."--Darren Hibbs, Nova Southeastern University


"This book is excellent; thoughtful, clear, and pitched just right for our students. It is especially useful for students with little previous background in the formal study of ethics. I always use this text bundled with Shafer-Landau's The Ethical Life."--James Craig Hanks, Texas State University


"I have used this text the past two times that I've offered the course. It remains superior to Rachels. I have and will continue to recommend this book to colleagues. I would emphasize the use of arguments and the high quality of the writing. And the price."--Avery Kolers, University of Louisville


"I find this text to be much more useful than Rachels; it nicely combines philosophical sophistication with a clear, appropriate, and engaging writing style and an emphasis on critical reasoning. It comes with very helpful resources including excellent essay exam questions and short quiz checks for the students. It also provides useful discussion questions for each chapter."--Jacquelyn Ann K. Kegley, California State University, Bakersfield


"This marvelously clear book provides a thorough investigation of the most central issues in ethics. It's an ideal text for an undergraduate course in moral philosophy. I'm especially pleased with the resources available to students and faculty (e.g., study questions; chapter introductions and conclusions; exam questions/answer keys)." --Jesse Steinberg, University of Wisconsin-Madison
