I purchased this book for my sister as it was required reading for an Ethics class she was taking at her community college. I had recently graduated with a Bachelors in Philosophy as a second major from a 4 year university, and because of my background, she asked me a lot of questions and asked me to review her work. While helping, I discovered that many of the arguments and lessons were extremely biased to a specific interpretation. One of the things I loved most about studying philosophy was the multiple ways one could approach a topic. My professors in college also had their own ideas about interpretations, but also wanted each student to develop their own options using reason. In this book, the authors objective seemed to be telling you what to think rather than how to think and form your own conclusions. Additionally, I was rather shocked to find that a sizable chapter on Utilitarianism mentioned John Stuart Mill only in a small footnote as "additional reading". As an introductory book for a student who has no further interest in Moral philosophy outside of filling a course requirement, this book will suffice. For a serious student of Philosophy though, I'd recommend a different book.
A pretty good textbook. Text is easy to understand. It is wrttien in language that easily comprehendable. I would recommend this book to others.
Not in good shape at all. Thumbs down!
The book is be kept very well and like a new one. And the price is only the half than I saw in the bookstore

Just what we needed.
It is the one I need. I am satisfied with this book .
There was nothing wrong with the book. In my school's library cost twice the price that here on Amazon, I am happy to have checked here before spending the money in my school. The delivery was fine and the book condition too.
