Summary
A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox takes a refreshingly hands-on approach to ethics. It aims to help its readers make a constructive difference, in both word and deed, in problematic moral situations and real-life moral controversies. Ethics in this book is not a purely academic, historical, or theoretical matter -- it is essentially a practical subject that requires a wide range of practical skills: i.e., from paying attention to values to judging similar cases alike; and from learning how to "break out of the box" to moving beyond rhetoric to real dialogue. This book offers readers the tools to work out constructive, creative, and mutually agreeable decisions -- to actually make progress on the issues -- when they are faced with contemporary moral problems. In addition to Weston's discussion, the Toolbox also includes gripping and provocative short selections from essayists, activists, and philosophers
