An Ethical Life is a highly readable, engaging, and eminently practical guide for anyone who wants to learn how to think more clearly, deeply, and consistently about ethics. If your students have ever struggled to explain what makes any given decision ethical, or how one should “decide” what is right, this book is for you.

Using a framework for discussion and deliberation called the Four-Way Method for Ethical Decision-Making, Richard Kyte shows students how it’s possible to work out complex ethical problems on their own. Grappling with ethical issues, and being able to articulate the reasoning behind decision-making, requires the development of native abilities only—no sophisticated theories necessary.

Other features of An Ethical Life:

• Biographies introduce influential philosophers in the history of ethics
• Activity boxes provide exercises for in-class activities or group exercises
• An appendix on method application includes case and issue examples

After finishing the book, readers will come away confident that ethical reasoning is a skill everyone is capable of learning and mastering, just like any other. Most important, students will discover that this skill can be practically employed to live life more fully, meaningfully, and well.
