Topics covered include:- divine authority- the social contract- moral relativism- virtue ethics- freedom and determinism- euthanasia- capital punishment- war and terrorism- abortion- business ethicsIdeal for undergraduate students coming to philosophical ethics for the first time, this book utilizes popular film to introduce a central topic in the study of philosophy.
