Omtale: Contemporary Debates in Applied Ethics
"Contemporary Debates in Applied Ethics" features pairs of newly commissioned essays by some of the leading theorists working in the field today. The book brings together fresh debates on eleven of the most controversial issues in applied ethics. The topics addressed include abortion, affirmative action, animals, capital punishment, cloning, euthanasia, immigration, pornography, privacy in civil society, values in nature, and world hunger. The lively debate format sharply defines the issues, and paves the way for further discussion. It will serve as an accessible introduction to the major topics in applied ethics, whilst also capturing the imagination of professional philosophers.
