Editorial Reviews for Ethics: A Complete Method For
When Daniel Maguire's volume The Moral Choice was published in 1978, it was widely hailed for its comprehensive, ambitious, ecumenical, and creative approach to Christian ethics. Maguire has now completely recast that award-winning volume in light of the remarkable intellectual and social changes since that time. With eighty percent new material, the new volume retains Maguire's basic framework - the moral wheel - but completely rewrites the book in a less formal style and adds seven more chapters to make it up-to-date in every respect.
Maguire's Ethics renovates ethics for today's context but retains the searching
openness and stress on the moral imagination that made The Moral Choice such
a landmark work and popular textbook.

Moral problems are ubiquitous in human life. In this new introductory text for ethics courses, Daniel C. Maguire constructs a complete method to show students how to address the broad range of ethical issues. The method's basic framework is presented graphically as "the moral wheel", which identifies the central, core questions and the pluriform ways to evaluate responding to them. This survey text includes many features, such as critical thinking boxes, discussion questions, and a glossary, to help students engage more fully with today's moral challenges.
