'Bernard Rosen's Ethical Theory: Strategies and Concepts offers a thorough examination of the major normative ethical theories and provides the tools (strategies) for evaluating them. Rosen doesn't present ethical theories as simply a set of abstract ideas; he helps students see the relevance of ethical theory by providing a wealth of exercises and encouraging readers to clarify their own assumptions, background beliefs, and moral judgments.
Features include: a 52 item questionnaire in the first chapter to help students determine the kinds of theories they are inclined to hold. Eighteen exercise sets interspersed throughout the book to illustrated applications of the theories. Coverage of Kohlberg, Gilligan, virtue ethics, existentialism, intuitionism, and pragmatism.'
