Ethics for A-Level
Unrestricted Use

0.0 stars

What does pleasure have to do with morality? What role, if any, should intuition have in the formation of moral theory? If something is ‘simulated', can it be immoral?

This accessible and wide-ranging textbook explores these questions and many more. Key ideas in the fields of normative ethics, metaethics and applied ethics are explained rigorously and systematically, with a vivid writing style that enlivens the topics with energy and wit. Individual theories are discussed in detail in the first part of the book, before these positions are applied to a wide range of contemporary situations including business ethics, sexual ethics, and the acceptability of eating animals. A wealth of real-life examples, set out with depth and care, illuminate the complexities of different ethical approaches while conveying their modern-day relevance.

This concise and highly engaging resource is tailored to the Ethics components of AQA Philosophy and OCR Religious Studies, with a clear and practical layout that includes end-of-chapter summaries, key terms, and common mistakes to avoid. It should also be of practical use for those teaching Philosophy as part of the International Baccalaureate.

Ethics for A-Level is of particular value to students and teachers, but Fisher and Dimmock's precise and scholarly approach will appeal to anyone seeking a rigorous and lively introduction to the challenging subject of ethics.

(This case study was added to OER Commons as one of a batch of over 700. It has relevant information which may include medical imagery, lab results, and history where relevant. A link to the final diagnosis can be found at the end of the case study for review. The first paragraph of the case study -- typically, but not always the clinical presentation -- is provided below.)

A 73 year-old male presented with a 6 month history of progressive tetraparesis, during which he had deteriorated markedly from being mobile and performing in a steel band to completely bed-bound. Medical history included ischemic heart disease and type II diabetes mellitus. Neurological examination revealed symmetrical pyramidal weakness, pathologically increased deep tendon reflexes and increased tone in all 4 limbs. Plantar response was upgoing bilaterally. Pinprick-sensation was reduced below the neck. Cranial nerve examination was normal. An MRI scan showed a well-demarcated extra-axial mass on the dorsal surface of the lower medulla/upper cervical cord extending from the level of the clivus to the body of the axis inferiorly (figures 1, 2, 3 and 4). The mass exhibited heterogeneous hyper-intensity on T2W (figure 1), low-to-intermediate signal on T1W (figure 2), and florid enhancement with Gadolinium contrast-agent (figures 3 and 4). The spinal cord exhibited high T2-signal, consistent with edema, from the level of the tumour superiorly to the body of C5 inferiorly. There was no bony erosion or sclerosis, or enhancing dural 'tail'.

Rating
0.0 stars

Part I of the text is a survey of ethical systems, methods of determining the right thing to do and how to reforge ourselves and communities, so that we might be humble, wise, and just. Part II of the text looks at short selections of speeches and readings from a variety of philosophers arguing for particular ethical principles, discussing what makes for a good life, the degree to which we can offload our moral thinking onto the divine, analysis of systems of power, and how to conceptualize and respond to uneven moral and political structures in society. The last part of the text is a series of applied ethical issues, such as reproductive rights, environmental ethics, animal rights, and so on.
