Moral Choices helps college students form a sound basis for making ethical decisions in today's complex postmodern culture. This book grounds students in both the theory of ethics and its application to today's pressing social issues. Avoiding undue dogmatism, Professor Scott B. Rae outlines the distinctive elements of Christian ethics. He also introduces students to various ethical systems and their key historical proponents, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, and Kant. And, after describing a seven-step procedure for tackling ethical dilemmas, he uses case studies to address the current issues listed below. Now in its second edition, Moral Choices is expanded and revised to provide the most current insights. Topics include: Abortion Reproductive Technologies Euthanasia Capital Punishment Sexual Ethics The Morality of War The Legislation of Morality New: Genetic Technologies and Human Cloning Besides the new chapter, substantial changes have been made in the chapters on euthanasia and reproductive technologies.
