The Elements of Moral Philosophy is one of the best undergraduate textbooks for ethical theory courses. It offers a wealth of information on the different types of ethical theories and also deals with age-old and current issues, from abortion to marijuana. Authors James Rachels and Stuart Rachels start off by discussing what morality is, and then continue on to the challenge of cultural relativism, subjectivism in ethics, psychological egoism, and ethical egoism. They offer interesting answers to questions about morality and religion, absolute moral rules, and satisfactory moral theories. The utilitarian approach, the debate over utilitarianism, Kant and respect for persons, the idea of a social contract, and the ethics of virtue are also covered. The Elements of Moral Philosophy (ISBN 9780073386713) discusses reason and impartiality, the evolution of the theory, the theory of natural law, the utilitarian approach, morality without hubris, and justice and fairness. The textbook offers an in-depth explanation on major moral theories, making it ideal for introductory-level courses. With this textbook, students are able to mold their own moral thinking. This edition has been updated with timely topics such as homosexuality, marijuana, poverty, euthanasia, sexism, and racism. Lead author James Rachels is a known American Moral philosopher and has taught in several prestigious universities. Stuart Rachels works at the University of Alabama as an associate professor for philosophy and has revised some of the philosophy books of James Rachel.
