Moral Philosophy: A Reader (Third Edition)
It is fitting for everyone to try to put his own house in order. Thus it is the great moral systems elaborated in the course of the history of Western culture that a western philosopher will have to discuss if he intends to see clearly into his own tradition and to seek the materials for a doctrinal renewal of ethics through a critical study of the past. In examining the Occidental systems which seem to us—given our purpose—the most significant, we will however not forget the treasures of Oriental thought, nor the fact that Christianity, without which neither western civilization nor western thought would be what they are, was born in Israel, and transcends by its universality both Orient and Occident.

One of the most helpful Philosophy books I have ever read! It was assigned to me by my Ethics professor Dr. Stephanie Bauer and I have no idea how useful it would become. I found it easy to read and comprehend I kept it for referencing. Now that I have graduated with a BA in Philosophy I realized I have used this book so much it is falling a part. Even though I have sold/donated all my other textbooks this one I'm keeping :)
