Review: "This anthology focuses on the central questions of ethics: What is the nature of morality? Why be moral? What are the requirements of morality? It draws together the best available classical and contemporary readings to make these questions come alive for today's students. Utilitarian, Kantian, and Aristotelian viewpoints are all well represented." "Unique about the anthology is that it covers the three main challenges to ethics from feminism, which shows how gender is relevant to morality; from environmentalism, which raises the question who is to count in morality; and from postmodernism, which emphasizes the importance of different perspectives in morality."--BOOK JACKET.
