Product Description

Ideas have consequences, and in a society that prides itself on knee jerk reactions, and truncated understandings, these consequences often go unnoticed. Sometimes those ideas can be squeezed in to slogans, slapped on bumper stickers and tweeted into cyberspace. These compact messages coming at us from all directions often compress in a few words entire ethical systems. In Beyong Bumper-Sticker Ethics: An Introduction to Theories of Right and Wrong Steve Wilkens shows us that there's a lot more to the ideas behind these slogans--ideas that need to be sorted out before we make important moral decisions as individuals or as societies. With clarity and wit Wilkens unpacks the complicated ideas behind the slogans and offers Christian evaluations of each.

In this revised and expanded edition of Steve Wilkens's widely-used text, the author has updated his introductions to basic ethical systems including:

  • Cultural Relativism
  • Ethical Egoism
  • Utilitarianism
  • Behaviorism
  • Situation Ethics
  • Kantian Ethics
  • virtue Ethics
  • Natural Law Ethics
  • Divine Command Theory


He has also added two new chapters:
  • evolutionary ethics
  • Narrative ethics
