Summary

Applied Ethics: Strengthening Ethical Behaviour addresses the hands-on practicalities of ethical behavior. The contributors strongly believe that ethical practices in our institutions and throughout society at large can be strengthened through education, and through an improved awareness and understanding of ethical issues. This book is aimed at students in ethics courses across the range of disciplines covered by universities, colleges and trade schools. It would also be of value to educators, consultants and practitioners in the workforce. The book draws on the expertise of over 20 teachers, practitioners and consultants in ethics from across 14 different disciplines. Ranging from nurses to business practitioners, from lawyers to politicians. -- back cover.
