An introduction to applied ethics, this guide is intended for students taking courses in law, medicine, science, teaching, social work, and other professions. Pointing to the ethical codes that will guide their working lives, the discussion shows students how to use moral theory to identify breaches of professional standards. The first half of the book focuses on the philosophy of ethics, including ordinary moral values, moral relativism, moral principles, moral reasoning, virtues and vices, and role morality. The second half looks at real problems faced by professionals - including corruption, paternalism, and sexual misconduct - and considers controversial subjects such as informed consent, professional confidentiality, euthanasia, reproductive technology, and drug abuse. Each chapter begins with stories and case studies drawn from history, literature, the Bible, news stories, and other sources.
Half of the essays have been written or revised for this anthology. Eleven essays are new to this edition, and the sections on theory, reproductive technologies, war and terrorism, and animals have all been expanded.

Lawyers' ethics have been condemned for centuries, but they received little scholarly scrutiny until the last few decades. Ethics in Practice brings together leading experts in the emerging field of legal ethics to discuss the central dilemmas of practicing law.

Contributors address common concerns from diverse perspectives, including philosophy, psychology, economics, political science, and organizational behavior.

This three-volume Major Work explores the subject of ethics as an aspect of research practice.
Author: Julie Scott-Jones
This three-volume Major Work explores the subject of ethics as an aspect of research practice. As many researchers have noted, research design and implementation are two different things; in the 'field', ethical issues can change and new issues can emerge. What are and are not ethical issues, and the contested and evolving nature of ethics, are a couple of key aspects considered in this collection's collated literature, and particularly in relation to the different ethical strategies utilised by researchers. The selected papers in this Major Work are contextualised by introductory passages written by the editor, which explore the rationale, key themes and issues. Volume One: Power, politics and reflexivity Volume Two: Covert research Volume Three: Contemporary issues and challenges
