101 Ethical Dilemmas

Передня обкладинка
Psychology Press, 2003 - 332 стор.
Will meat eaters get into heaven? Do trees have rights? Is it ever right to design a baby? From overcrowded lifeboats to the censor's pen, these dilemmas should have you scatching your head and laughing out loud in equal measure. Whatever your background, there is a dilemma for you. There are: the DIY babies and the breeding experiements from medicine; an ethically dubious chemical factory; business ethics; the School of Terror from world affairs; and the Twinkies courtroom drama from law. In this book, you'll find dilemmas in the shape of beautiful and ugly sisters, frog kings, ancient volcanic islands and exotic villages. This book won't help you become a good person, but at least you will have thought about it.
