Summary
"Arguments about ethics often centre on the 'big' questions, such as euthanasia and abortion. Whilst these questions are still in the foreground recent years have seen an explosion of new moral problems. Moral and political clashes are now as likely to be about sexuality and gender and the status of refugees, immigrants and borders, or the ethics of social media, safe spaces, disability and robo-ethics. How should we approach these debates? What are the issues at stake? What are the most persuasive arguments? Edited by best-selling philosophy author David Edmonds Ethics and the Contemporary World assembles a star-studded line up of philosophers to explore twenty-five of the most important ethical problems confronting us today. They engage with moral problems in discrimination, the environment, war and international relations, ethics and social media, democracy, rights and moral status, and ethical issues in science and technology. Whether you want to learn more about the ethics of poverty, food, extremism or artificial intelligence and enhancement, this book will help you understand the issues, sharpen your perspective and, hopefully, make up your own mind"--
