Summary

Now in its seventh edition, The Moral of the Storycontinues to bring understanding to difficult concepts in moral philosophy through storytelling and story analysis. Students will study ethical relativism by examining the film Avatar, explore utilitarianism through The Invention of Lying, and discuss Kant's deontology by examining Woody Allen's Match Point. They will consider virtue ethics by juxtaposing Plato's "Myth of the Cave" with the themes in The Truman Show. Rosenstand's work is lively and relatable, and students will enjoy discussing examples from contemporary film, fiction narratives, and even popular comic strips.
