Thinking Critically About Ethical Issues encourages students to reason out for themselves the best answers to moral problems, rather than providing neat answers for students to swallow and regurgitate. Striking a balance between the theoretical and the practical, Ruggiero's text discusses the history of ethics, but its focus is on doing ethics to promote the development of critical thinking skills and to help students acquire confidence in their own judgement. The short chapter length allows students to spend less time reading and more time doing ethical analysis.
