5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of quite simply brilliant essays on ethics, 27 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Applied Ethics (Oxford Readings In Philosophy) (Paperback)
This is a wonderful book. The essays are all of a high standard - thought provoking, challenging and well written. Although they deal with profound issues, you do not need to be familiar with ethical concepts to benefit from the book. If you are interested in ethics, I think this is essential reading. One or two essays seem dated in terms of examples used and data referred to (particularly 8 and 14) - but even here once you get beyond the specific examples used the essays are still brilliant. Overall I particularly liked 4, 12 and 13 - two of which are topics I would not normally be deeply interested in. If you want to enjoy academic writing at its best, most practical and most accessible you would struggle to do better than this volume.
