Tony Fitzpatrick, "Applied Ethics and Social Problems: Moral questions of birth, society and death"
Policy Press | 2008-06-04 | ISBN: 1861348606 | 280 pages | PDF | 1 MB
Designed to address practical questions, applied ethics is one of the most exciting areas in contemporary philosophy. Yet the relevance of ethical theories to social policy has been under-explored. Until now. In "Applied Ethics and Social Problems" Tony Fitzpatrick presents introductions to the three most influential moral philosophies: Consequentialism, Kantianism and Virtue Ethics. He then relates these to some of the most urgent questions in contemporary public debates about the future of welfare services.These include: Taxing unhealthy habits; drug legalisation; parental choice in education; abortion; euthanasia; and, migration and cultural diversity. In each case he asks a perennial question: what are the legitimate boundaries of state action and individual liberty? Never before has there been such a rigorous overview of the topic offered to social policy students, academics and professionals, as well as those interested in public policy, politics and social science. A user-friendly intervention into these key debates, "Applied Ethics and Social Problems" will set the agenda for years to come.
