The aim of this series is to bring together important recent writings in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly periodicals, which may not be conveniently available to the university student or the general reader.
The editor of each volume contributes an introductory essay on the items chosen and on the questions with which they deal.
A selective bibliography is appended as a guide to further reading.
The essays in this collection cover a range of issues of urgent practical concern in the field of ethics, including nuclear war and world famine, abortion and euthanasia, and the moral status of animals.
