"It introduces theoretical concepts in an intriguing way, and it condenses a great deal of material in an accessible form." -- Michael Gavin, Eastern Michigan University

"I have used the text for several semesters and find it quite good for my students." -- Delores Doench, Southwestern Community College

"ETHICS: DISCOVERING RIGHT AND WRONG is an outstanding introductory ethics text, written with a keen eye to the abilities of upper-level undergraduate students. The authors do a nice job of clarifying abstract philosophical concepts in a way that demonstrates their relevance in the real world." -- Vic McCracken, Abilene Christian University

"I am impressed with the readability of the text, in terms of both reading level and clarity. It is hard enough to explain philosophy, but they do so with simple language and many concrete examples. This would be an easier text for my students to read while still offering them solid content." -- Mary Beth O'Halloran, Century College

"This is an excellent text that covers the broad range of issues in normative and metaethics quite well, but still being introductory enough for an intro course. For an advanced undergraduate course, it would pair nicely with source readings." -- Eric Rovie, Agnes Scott College --This text refers to an alternate edition. Louis P.
