In this remarkably accessible, concise, and engaging introduction to moral philosophy, Steven M. Cahn brings together a rich, balanced, and wide-ranging collection of fifty readings on ethical theory and contemporary moral issues. He has carefully edited all the articles to ensure that they will be exceptionally clear and understandable to undergraduate students. The selections are organized into three parts-Challenges to Morality, Moral Theories, and Moral Problems-providing instructors with flexibility in designing and teaching a variety of ethics courses. Each reading is followed by study questions. The third edition of Exploring Ethics provides more coverage of contemporary problems, featuring new selections on euthanasia, capital punishment, animal rights, affirmative action, academic ethics, the trolley problem, and the meaning of life. A Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/cahn offers a password-protected Instructor's Manual-containing a test bank, key terms with definitions, reading summaries, and PowerPoint lectures-and self-quizzes, vocabulary flashcards, and useful links for students.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Exploring Ethics is better than other anthologies for several reasons; it offers a good combination of original/classic works and pieces that are summaries of views. It also stays at the introductory level and covers the topics that I teach--the theories and a good selection of issues for my intro. class. I rate this book a 10 because of its selections and its price."--Deborah White, University of Massachusetts Lowell


"The readings are quite accessible (and blessedly short!); students should have NO trouble finding their way through them without extra help. The book's price is right, it is easily accessible to all students (including ESL students), and it covers the right material."--Rebecca S. Hertsgaard, College of the Desert


"The editing is quite good: selections are pared down, in many cases, to their core arguments. The self-scoring quizzes are an excellent resource."--Thomas Atchison, Metropolitan State University
