  • Treats teleological and deontological approaches to ethics as the two most important traditions, but now includes chapters on virtue ethics and the ethics of care 
  • The very accessible writing style speaks directly to students’ own experience 
  • Draws examples from three types of real-life ethical scenarios submitted by students: academic dishonesty, partying, and personal relationships
