SCM AS/A2 Ethics and Moral Philosophy
This item is out of stock.
Written by an experienced teacher and examiner, the book introduces religious ethics and moral decision-making in general and then proceeds to introduce the major concepts, key thinkers and schools of thought including Natural Law, Empiricism, Virtue Ethics and Consequentialism.
The final section of the book focuses on a range of ethical ‘issues’ and introduces ways of approaching the moral challenges of the world in which we live.
'Ethics and Moral Philosophy … is designed to support the teaching of AS/A2 Religious Studies. It is particularly relevant to the ethics modules, and is an admirable companion volume to a previously published general introduction to The Philosophy of Religion by the same publisher.
The series could not be described as holiday reading, but the style is eminently readable and well structured. Older students embarking on this subject as a new field of interest would find this SCM series stimulating and reader-friendly.' The Church Times
'A well-written book which puts into context how ethics and moral philosophy relates to today and religion. The topics covered are written in an interesting and informative way making links to the key theorists. Both students and teachers can use the book easily dipping in and out of certain areas to take an in depth look at the arguments being presented.' TES Connect', October 2009
