Revealing® Ethics: Theory & Issues includes ten modules (corresponding to textbook chapters) that cover the basics of ethical theory and its application to contemporary issues that are often taught in introductory ethics and applied ethics courses. The text is written to provide user-friendly, broad, and balanced discussions of representative ethical arguments about key ethical issues that are prominent today. Learning is reinforced immediately with interactive exercises, open-response questions, and a large bank of review questions. Students keep a running journal of their developing thoughts as they work through the courseware.

The major ethical theories discussed in the first four modules are clearly applied to each ethical issue discussed in subsequent modules. The ethical theories in Revealing® Ethics: Theory & Issues include not only central philosophical theories such as egoism, utilitarianism, rights and justice, and natural law, but also up-to-date treatments of virtue theory and religious ethics. Instructors can easily choose which ethical theories they want to focus upon for each ethical issue. Each issue module provides historical and legal context of the issue, as well as a balanced application of the ethical theories to that issue. Content is updated on a semester-by-semester basis, improving existing material with new developments related to each issue.
