Quick Overview

"Teachers of introductory ethics and applied ethics classes will have a hard time resisting Charles Cardwell's Hornbook Ethics. I am a big fan. The author has a remarkable gift for briefly introducing the basics of moral philosophy, and his book is so clear and concise that any serious student will be able to learn much from it. Not every philosopher will share its views or priorities of course, but these are set forth with such clarity that it will be easy to use even disagreements as teaching moments. I am unaware of a better introduction to ethics whose brevity approaches this one's."
     —Peter Tramel, Department of Philosophy, Fort Hays State University

"Does what many ethics textbooks fail to do: introduce us to ethical language and how it engages with the reader of ethics. . . . a truly great primer."
      —Alberto Mendoza, Antelope Valley College


"A welcome contribution to ethics. It should accompany anthologies of issues in applied ethics. It is well-written, well-organized and comprehensive, yet reasonably priced. The title . . . refers to a secondary source that covers principles and historical development, but not cutting-edge issues. In this case, this book covers the basic concepts and principles of ethics, with emphasis on logical reasoning. It also contains nice Sidebars with cases showing how the principles can be used, or showing problems in the use of those principles. Highly recommended for undergraduate ethics classes."
