Summary

Using a clear, jargon-free style and a flexible organization, this book introduces readers with little or no background in philosophy or ethics to traditional and contemporary ethical theory. An abundance of examples and case studies illustrates for readers how to set up their own systematic, rational ethics and how to apply ethical theories to traditional and contemporary moral issues. A flexible organization is offered with a wide variety of theories and issues from which to choose. Cases for study and discussion are included allowing readers to understand how ethical theory and discussion can be applied specifically.

A valuable reference book for any professional who can use ethics to solve everyday business problems.
