Book Description

25 Aug 2011
Global ethics addresses some of the most pressing ethical concerns today, including rogue states, torture, scarce resources, poverty, migration, consumption, global trade, medical tourism and humanitarian intervention. It is both topical and important. How we resolve (or fail to resolve) the dilemmas of global ethics shapes how we understand ourselves, our relationships with each other and the social and political frameworks of governance now and into the future. This is seen most clearly in the case of climate change, where our actions now determine the environment our grandchildren will inherit, but it is also the case in other areas as our decisions about what it is permissible for humans beings to do to each other determines the type of beings we are. This book, suitable for course use, introduces students to the theory and practice of global ethics, ranging over issues in global governance and citizenship, poverty and development, war and terrorism, bioethics, environmental and climate ethics and gender justice.

Product Description

Review

A superb analysis of the ethical issues that arise at the global level. It succeeds in both covering a great deal of ground and in doing so in considerable depth. One particularly attractive feature of the book is the way it unites ethical analysis with detailed accounts of the practical challenges that we face today. "Global Ethics" is also wonderfully clear, and introduces complex ideas in an extremely accessible and illuminating way. --Simon Caney, University of Oxford

An excellent text that deserves to become the standard introduction to the topic. It makes complex issues intelligible to a broad range of potential readers, including those who have done little or no philosophy, without at any point dumbing down. An impressive achievement, the book is at once usable, engaging and thought-provoking. --Bob Brecher, University of Brighton

Widdows illuminates today's leading theories with compelling case-studies, expertly blending philosophy and practice. Those looking for a vivid and accessible overview of the best contemporary thinking about global ethics should read this book. --Leif Wenar, King's College London
