Item description for Developing Moral Imagination: Case Studies in Practical Morality by Edward Stevens...

The issues may change with the passing of the years, but the categories of concern change very little: sexuality and the sexes; medical decision-making; justice for the poor, the powerless, the underclass; reproductive decision-making; moral decision-making in business; and personal moral choices. Stevens attempts to present alternative positions on hotly debated new moral issues from a different standpoint, using an ethical pluralism approach. In doing this, he hopes to help readers arrive at their own non-polarized positions by learning from and respecting all parties in the discussion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Developing Moral Imagination: Case Studies in Practical Morality?

Developing Moral Confusion...  Apr 10, 2001
This is, hands down, one of the worst theological books I've ever read. Stevens is attempting to mediate between "relativism" and "absolutism" by providing supposedly thought-provoking middle-ground insights (called "PO"s) on a variety of "live" issues in a "non-ideological" way. He fails miserably. Not only is he obviously biased in his presentation, this work is in desperate need of editing. His articulation of opposing positions is caricatured and weak, and the numerous sources he draws from are entirely random and largely unscholarly ("Dyke Life"?).

The only redeeming value I saw in this book was the possibility of using it as a case study in how NOT to write a book or argue -- the via negativa. BOOOOOOOOOO.
