    Jonathan Wolff (Editor, Oxford University)


    Diverse and inclusive, with plenty of student support

    This NEW reader provides a more diverse selection of philosophers and ethical issues than any other book of its kind. Used on its own or as a companion to Jonathan Wolff’s An Introduction to Moral Philosophy, it offers an ideal collection of important readings in moral theory and compelling issues in applied ethics. Smart pedagogy and an affordable price make it an outstanding value for students.


    A contemporary treatment of gender and race

    This reader includes more pieces written by women and philosophers of color than any competing collection of its kind. In addition, it includes separate units on gender equality, racial justice, and resistance. 

    An effective pedagogical framework and media support package

    This reader doesn’t just expose students to important original arguments in moral philosophy; it provides the tools they need to understand such arguments. Wolff has written introductions to each of the book’s three parts as well as to each applied ethics topic and each moral theory selection. In addition, Study Questions test reading comprehension, while Compare and Contrast Questions engage students in drawing connections between different philosophical viewpoints. The text and reader are also supported by a full test bank and an online coursepack. 

    An incredible value

    An Introduction to Moral Philosophy and Readings in Moral Philosophy each cost less—often significantly less—than their primary competitors. Additionally, the two books can be packaged together for a truly exceptional price.
