Ethics is concerned with the way human beings ought to behave. This book, written in the form of a dialogue, is an introduction to several ethical theories and to four major contemporary moral issues: euthanasia, abortion, animal rights, and capital punishment. It aims to develop some views and arguments that have already emerged in the literature of ethics.
Rocco J. Gennaro is Associate Professor of Philosophy, Indiana State University.
