Moral Philosophy for Modern Life, second edition, is designed as an introductory level textbook for postsecondary students. It can be used in moral philosophy, liberal arts, humanities, social science, general education, critical reasoning, and generic skills courses, as well as in any vocational program of study containing an ethics component.

Adopting a learning-centered orientation, the book shifts attention away from simple coverage of theoretical content and places it on what students will know and be able to do as a result of their philosophical study. The author masterfully uses accessible language to convey complex ideas, while maintaining a high level of student interest and involvement.
