Teaching ethics in high school and college is a challenge: Students should be exposed to a range of contemporary moral problems and gain reasoning tools and discussion skills to address these problems. Short stories are a great tool for this: They transport the reader to the very core of the issues and raise pertinent questions. Luc Bovens has constructed a web-based course with forty short stories by prominent writers from around the world. The short stories are paired with articles from the popular press that address the issues from a journalistic angle and with guiding questions to start the discussion.
