Abstract

Excerpt

Teachers of basic college ethics courses have long known that narrative instruments such as novels, stories, and films can be extremely effective teaching tools. Nina Rosenstand’s popular text, The Moral of the Story (New York: McGraw-Hill, 2006), is a good example of a textbook that exploits this insight. In the last few years there have been a number of texts oriented around film as the basic teaching device. Dean A. Kowalski’s Moral Theory at the Movies is one of the better entries into this market.
