Series Description

Studies in Theoretical & Applied Ethics provides a forum for scholars of ethics, understood in its broadest sense. The editors seek original monographs and collections of essays which will explore the philosophical problems that arise when we reflect on the question of how we ought to live, and on the resources which we might use to inform or decisions. The editors are particularly interested in work that brings to light ethical issues from across the disciplines, such as those found in the sciences, business, law, medicine, history, and literature.
