A Companion to Applied Ethics (Foundations of Business Ethics)
A Companion to Applied Ethics (Foundations of Business Ethics)
by R. G. Frey
Edition: Paperback
Price: 32.03

5.0 out of 5 stars A well constructed companion, 30 Dec 2009
This is an extremely useful series of articles that should be in every School/College library where Ethics is studied at Post-16 level. It covers all of the main areas of Applied Ethics and contains articles written by leading scholars. The articles are advanced and so not always suitable for all students. However, they will provide additional challenge for more able students who want to read around the topics that they are studying in lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to Plato's Republic, 30 Dec 2009
An excellent introductory text that is easy to read. Perfect for someone who hasn't studied much Plato but equally enjoyable for the more advanced student. Succinct and well written. Very quotable, so extremely useful for essay writing!


The development of Kant's view of ethics
The development of Kant's view of ethics
by Keith Ward
Edition: Unknown Binding

5.0 out of 5 stars A good analysis of Kant's ethics, 30 Dec 2009
As one would expect from Ward, this book offers a well considered critical analysis of the development of Kant's approach to ethics. Well worth reading if you are an undergraduate student who wants to add depth to your understanding of Kant.


The Final Empire: Mistborn Book One: 1
The Final Empire: Mistborn Book One: 1
by Brandon Sanderson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.82

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read, 30 Dec 2009
Decided to read some more of Sanderson after finishing the first of the WoT books he completed. Enjoyed this just as much and have been impressed by the quality of his writing. Kept me hooked throughout and was a very enjoyable read. Good pace to the story throughout and well drawn characters. If you have enjoyed books by Jordan, Hobb, Donaldson, Le Guin, Gemmell, Lawhead or Julian May then this book is worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but does contain some errors!, 2 July 2008
This is not a bad textbook (it is certainly used by a lot of Schools) but it is important to realise that although it says 'OCR Edition' it is not approved by OCR. It does contain some errors - particularly in relation to Religious Language. I would recommend using the textbook that has been specifically written for the OCR course (this has the approved for OCR logo on the front cover) and is edited by the chief examiner for RS (Jon Mayled).
