Moral Choices in Contemporary Society: Newspaper Articles for the Sixth Course by Newspaper.
Rieff, Philip; And Others
Sixteen articles written for publication in newspapers discuss moral issues in contemporary society. The articles form the basis of a college-level course by newspaper which also includes a book of primary source readings, study guide, and source book. The course can be taken independently by individuals or in a structured class setting. The articles, or "lectures," are written mainly by university professors and researchers. Content covers 16 areas of problems of living, including sexual conduct, crime and punishment, business and political ethics, work, and science and technology. The articles identify the issues and present varying perspectives on them; the supplementary materials contain relevant readings, discussion questions, and other instructional resources. Each article is preceded by a paragraph which gives background information about the author. (AV)
