Written in an easy and approachable style and packed with livelyexamples from everyday life, the first section of the book clearlyexplains and assesses the arguments for and against the rival moraltheories of utilitarianism, Kantianism, Divine Command Theory andvirtue ethics. The second section develops this by analysing theconflicting advice each moral theory gives regarding fourcontroversial areas of life, namely euthanasia, abortion, animalrights and the environment. The final section concludes with anaccount of the vital debate concerning whether the differencebetween right and wrong is an objective fact discovered by us, likegravity, or is instead a human creation and invented by us, liketax laws.
