About

Overview

The four-volume set includes detailed investigations of historical and theoretical material including topics from the award-winning first edition published in 1998, plus topics on issues that were not or only just barely on the horizon. In addition to the areas in which particular issues arise, it is still essential for those engaged in applied ethics to reflect on what is being applied. The work includes a number of articles on ethical and philosophical approaches, historical and contemporary, religious and secular. Led by an esteemed editorial board, it is written not only by practitioners in the particular fields in question; but by academics from disciplines such as law and economics. A broad and inclusive table of contents ensures detailed investigation of historical and theoretical material as well as in-depth analysis of current issues. It will appeal to university, research and special libraries, as well as teachers, students, policy-makers and the interested general public around the world.
