ethics and LD: a great resource for beginners
I highly recommend Daniel Holbrook's Adventures in Ethics as a free introduction to the subject. The document, 28 pages long, includes a list of logical fallacies, a taxonomy of eight basic ethical theories, and snappy descriptions of each. I've taken the liberty of reproducing the map of the basic theories above. (Holbrook is an associate professor of philosophy at Washington State University.)
All you need to read it is a brain, an internet-ready computer, and Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you've come this far, you've already met the first two prerequisites.
