Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Thinking Critically About Ethical Issues encourages students to reason out for themselves the best answers to moral problems, rather than providing answers for students to memorize and repeat.  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. Instructors can customize Thinking Critically About Ethical Issues (as print or ebook) to include selections from Discourses, McGraw Hill’s collection of more than 450 classical and contemporary philosophy readings, offering convenience in discussing ethical issues with the exemplars they prefer.
