The second volume in applied ethics based on the distinguished Wayne Leys Memorial Lectureship Series.

 

With guidelines from legal reasoning, Michael D. Bayles examines ?Moral Theory and Application.” Abraham Edel questions ?Ethics Applied Or Conduct Enlightened?” The late Warner A. Wick shows in ?The Good Person and the Good Society: Some Ideals Foolish and Otherwise” that devotion to ideals need not be either fanaticism or foolishness. John Lachs contends that many public gains are purchased at the cost of individuals being manipulated in ?Public Benefit, Private Costs.” James E. Childress in ?Gift of Life?” considers ethical issues in obtaining and distributing human organs. Carl Wellman in ?Terrorism and Moral Rights” argues that there can be no ?rights-based justification” for anti-abortion terrorism.
