Morality Play is an ideal supplement for ethics courses, offering a case study approach that is both flexible and practical. It provides three alternative methods of organization for universal teaching approaches: contemporary moral problems, ethical theories, and moral principles. The introduction illustrates how to effectively use case studies in the classroom and provides a short review of the fundamentals of argumentation and critical thinking. Featuring ten new case studies, the latest edition continues to spotlight some of the most controversial, thought-provoking issues in ethics today. Themes such as crime and punishment, life and death, habitat and humanity, liberty and coercion, and value and culture are made relevant through insightful case studies drawn from newspaper accounts, legal opinions, and other factual sources. The cases present discrete problems designed to make readers examine their abstract notions about morality.

It is not only in our dark hours that scepticism, relativism, hypocrisy, and nihilism dog ethics. Whether it is a matter of giving to charity, or sticking to duty, or insisting on our rights, we can be confused, or be paralysed by the fear that our principles are groundless. Many are afraid that in a Godless world science has unmasked us as creatures fated by our genes to be selfish and tribalistic, or competitive and aggressive. Simon Blackburn, author of the best-selling Think, structures this short introduction around these and other threats to ethics. Confronting seven different objections to our self-image as moral, well-behaved creatures, he charts a course through the philosophical quicksands that often engulf us. Then, turning to problems of life and death, he shows how we should think about the meaning of life, and how we should mistrust the sound-bite sized absolutes that often dominate moral debates. Finally he offers a critical tour of the ways the philosophical tradition has tried to provide foundations for ethics, from Plato and Aristotle through to contemporary debates.
