Morality Play is an ideal supplement for ethics courses, offering a case study approach that is both flexible and practical. It provides three alternative methods of organization for universal teaching approaches: contemporary moral problems, ethical theories, and moral principles. The introduction illustrates how to effectively use case studies in the classroom and provides a short review of the fundamentals of argumentation and critical thinking. Featuring ten new case studies, the latest edition continues to spotlight some of the most controversial, thought-provoking issues in ethics today. Themes such as crime and punishment, life and death, habitat and humanity, liberty and coercion, and value and culture are made relevant through insightful case studies drawn from newspaper accounts, legal opinions, and other factual sources. The cases present discrete problems designed to make readers examine their abstract notions about morality.

In the process, he discovers himself, comes to the aid of an embattled extraterrestrial race, and sets right the wrongs he's inflicted on his dimension, thus curing a portion of general, all around, universal angst . . . or does he? Is there more to the story? Will the boy come to the aid of the Queen and her planet Doufear? Will he come to the aid of the universe by stopping the Wargons in their plight to take out thousands of years of built up anger? Will earth survive? Will Doufear? The Milky Way?
