Review: Ethics: Classical Western Texts in Feminist and Multicultural Perspectives

Ethics: Classical Western Texts in Feminist and Multicultural Perspectives
Ethics: Classical Western Texts in Feminist and Multicultural Perspectives by James P. Sterba

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is an excellent introduction to the great texts and concepts from both historical and contemporary ethics. It is especially helpful to see the common texts of Western thought contrasted and compared with texts from other traditions of philosophical thought, including the Chinese, the Indian, and various Native American traditions. I think the selections and the editorial comments were all very fair and very relevant. If you are looking for a good introduction to the primary texts of ethical thought, this is the place to start.
