About this Book

"It is a comprehensive, extremely valuable, and indeed indispensable reference work. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 September 2013)

“The review process of each entry – each article was vetted by a rigorous blind peer-review process – makes for an authoritative source in ethics, while the international team of expert editors ensures diverse and comprehensive views, particularly on controversial issues. Additionally, this set is the first to incorporate metaethics, practical ethics, and normative ethics into one set. This set is highly recommended for libraries in higher education. Aimed at a broad audience, it will be highly useful for undergraduate, graduate students, and scholars, who will likely find it to be an invaluable resource.” Booklist, September 2013
