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, Applied Ethics: Strengthening Ethical Behaviour sets out the latest research that can help strengthen ethical behaviour. Part I looks at distinguishing ‘right’ from ‘wrong’, the history of ethical thinking, whistleblowing, codes of ethics, ethical behavior, ethical leadership, and teaching ethics. Part II then examines how ethical issues are addressed in various disciplines, including business, law, medicine, politics and the media. Table of Contents

    About the Author:

    PETER BOWDEN is a member of the national committee of the Australian Association for Professional and Applied Ethics. Formerly coordinator of the MBA program at Monash University and Professor of Administration at the University of Manchester, he is now an Associate of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Sydney, and teaches ethics in the Faculty of Engineering.

    Review:

    Ethics, also known as moral philosophy, is a branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. Applied Ethics is the philosophical examination, from a moral standpoint, of particular issues in private and public life that are matters of moral judgment. It is thus the attempts to use philosophical methods to identify the morally correct course of action in various fields of human life. Bioethics, for example, is concerned with identifying the correct approach to matters such as euthanasia, or the allocation of scarce health resources, or the use of human embryos in research. Environmental ethics is concerned with questions such as the duties or duty of 'whistleblowers' to the general public as opposed to their loyalty to their employers. Knowledgeably compiled and deftly edited by Peter Bowden (Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, University of Sydney), "Applied Ethics: Strengthening Ethical Practices" is a 262-page compendium comprised of twenty-one informed and informative articles (chapters) covering a wide range of practical ethical issues cogently organized into two major sections: 'The ethical framework' and 'Ethics in the disciplines'. Superbly presented, "Applied Ethics: Strengthening Ethical Practices" is especially recommended for academic course curriculums in Ethics, as well as a core addition to community and academic library Philosophy & Ethics reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
