101 Ethical Dilemmas

Synopsis

Will meat eaters get into heaven? Do trees have rights? What is the correct way to 'design' a baby? What would YOU do? Would you always do the right thing? IS there a right thing?From overcrowded lifeboats to the censor's pen, Martin Cohen's stimulating and amusing dilemmas reveal the subtleties, complexities and downright contradictions that make up the rich tapestry of ethics.From DIY babies and breeding experiments, by way of ethically dubious chemical factories and the 'School of Terror', before finally ending up in the 'Twinkies courtroom drama' and Newgate Prison, there is a dilemma for everyone here. Dilemmas from the worlds of medical, business, legal and war ethics; dilemmas in the shape of beautiful and ugly sisters, frogs, kings, ancient volcanic islands and suspiciously exotic villages.This book may not help you become a good person, but at least you will have had a good think about it...
