  • morality and objectivity
  • consequentialism
  • deontology
  • virtue and character
  • value and well-being
  • moral psychology
  • applications: including abortion, famine relief and consent.
  • Included are both classical extracts from Plato, Aristotle, Hume, Kant and Mill, as well as contemporary classics from philosophers such as Thomas Nagel, Thomas Scanlon, Martha Nussbaum, Derek Parfit, and Peter Singer.

    A key feature of the anthology is that it covers the perennial topics in ethics as well as very recent ones, such as moral psychology, responsibility and experimental philosophy.
