Description

These audio lectures are a unique learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Moral Choices: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources. With its unique union of theory and application, Moral Choices: Audio Lectures and its accompanying textbook set the standard for college-level study of ethics. Moral Choices: Audio Lectures is designed to help students develop a sound and current basis for making ethical decisions in today's complex postmodern culture. The lectures outline the distinctive elements of Christian ethics while avoiding undue dogmatism. They also introduce other ethical systems and their key historical proponents, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Immanuel Kant. After describing a seven-step procedure for tackling ethical dilemmas, ethicist and professor Scott Rae uses case studies to address some of today's most pressing social issues. He guides students in thinking critically and biblically about abortion, reproductive technologies, genetic technologies and human cloning, euthanasia, capital punishment, sexual ethics, war, and economics. Designed with the learner in mind, each lecture is approximately 20 minutes. Moral Choices: Audio Lectures is useful for formal students and laypeople alike, providing an accessible introduction to Christian ethics and equipping them to form a basis for practical, ethical decision-making in contemporary culture.
