    Title: 101 Dilemmas for the Armchair Philosopher: Such as Is It Ok to Lie About Liking a Gift?
    Author: CHALINE ERIC

    In a democracy, should everyone - absolutely everyone - get a vote? Does it really matter if tigers become extinct? Why does murder carry a heavier penalty than attempted murder? If you don't like the socks your grandma gives you for Christmas, should you tell her so?
    This thought-provoking, interactive, and entertaining introduction to ethics will bring you face to face with some tough moral choices. It presents you with 101 imaginative scenarios - sometimes amusing, sometimes tragic, and sometimes uncomfortably realistic - which will force you to re-examine your most cherished assumptions about right and wrong. Including: Paul, the torturer with a conscience; Sally, who can prevent enormous suffering for the price of a latte; and Paul, who is handy with his sts but not a killer, surely.
    101 DILEMMAS FOR THE ARMCHAIR PHILOSOPHER is packed with problems, puzzles, quizzes and questions, as well as ethical ideas and insights from history's greatest philosphers.
