Intended as a core text or supplement for courses in ethics, moral problems, and any course with values in the title. The book is aimed at courses that combine theoretical ethics with applied (practical) ethics, with an emphasis on practical topics of everyday interest.

This book is an introduction to the philosophy of morality as it applies to practical moral needs. Moral character is explored in all its dimensions: virtues, vices, attitudes, emotions, commitments, and personal relationships, in addition to right and wrong conduct. The aim is to stimulate personal reflection and group dialogue, rather than to offer solutions. It seeks to sharpen ideas which we use as tools in coping responsibly with our daily lives.
