288 pages. Softcover. Good condition. ETHICS. This collection of legal cases is an attempt to provide some specific content to ethical theory, not only by way of concrete examples of different human relationships and situations in which specific questions of moral, as well as legal, responsibility arise, but also by demonstrating the manner in which the concept of moral duty often enters into the assignment of legal responsibility. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Legal Responsibility, Legal Norms, Moral Duty, Ethics, Philip E. Davis, Duties, Wrongs, Excuses, Justifications, Persuasion).
This is an excellent source I have used to teach a course in ethics. Davis brings concreteness to moral judgment by selecting cases that occurred in legal proceedings and give rise to moral issues. with this case method, there is a factual basis for moral questions to be answered. A wide array of questions are presented by Davis to direct attention to issues of moral judgment to be resolved. The substance of judgment is much in evidence. A careful student can get a grip on issues and relate facts to principles in a construcitve way. Substantive development of moral judgment is achieved.
