This unique hands-on guide uses a highly effective case approach to explore specific, reality-based examples of the complex, controversial, and difficult ethical issues that students face on college campuses today–e.g., plagiarism, racism and hate speech, date rape, alcohol abuse. Then, through thought-provoking questions and critical discussions, prods readers to explore their own positions, notions, and opinions, and to justify their stances. It shows them how five important ethical principles can be used to think through these problems and to solve them in ethical dialogues. Academic Integrity, Grading, and Cheating. Tolerance, Diversity, and Hate Speech. Privacy and Dialogue. Loyalty, Friendship, and Community. Sex, Relationships, and Power. Drinking and Living the Good Life. On Getting a Life. Religion, Relativism, and Dialogue. For college students and anyone interested in ethics.
