Applied Ethics: Strengthening Ethical Behaviour, sponsored by the AAPAE, addresses the hands-on practicalities of ethical behaviour. The contributors strong- ly believe that ethical practices in our institutions - and throughout society at large - can be strengthened through education, and through an improved aware- ness and understanding of ethical issues. This book is aimed at students in ethics courses across the range of disciplines covered by universities, colleges and trade schools. It would also be of value to educators, consultants and practitioners in the workforce. ISBN: Price: Pages: Imprint: Format: Trimsize: Binding: Pub. date: The book draws on the expertise of over 20 teachers, practitioners and consultants in ethics from across 14 different disciplines. Ranging from nurses to business practitioners, from lawyers to politicians, Applied Ethics: Strengthening Ethical Behaviour sets out the latest research that can help strengthen ethical behaviour. Part I looks at distinguishing 'right' from 'wrong', the history of ethical thinking, whistleblowing, codes of ethics, ethical behaviour, ethical leadership, and teaching ethics. Part II then examines how ethical issues are addressed in various disciplines, including business, law, medicine, politics and the media.
