Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics (2nd Ed.)
The four-volume set includes detailed investigations of historical and theoretical material including topics from the award-winning first edition published in 1998, plus topics on issues that were not or only just barely on the horizon. In addition to the areas in which particular issues arise, it is still essential for those engaged in applied ethics to reflect on what is being ‘applied.’ The work includes a number of articles on ethical and philosophical approaches, historical and contemporary, religious and secular. - Elsevier.com
