Entry in International Encyclopedia of Ethics

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Unmatched in scholarship and scope, the International Encyclopedia of Ethics is the most comprehensive and authoritative ethics resource of its kind. Available online or as an eleven-volume print set, the Encyclopedia espouses a broad vision of ethics that creates links to many other disciplines, including medicine, technology studies, computer science, business, religion, and law. Entries range in size from shorter definitions and biographies to extended treatments of major topics, and have been blind-reviewed by both the editorial team and an independent review board to ensure exceptional balance and accuracy throughout. Building on its established strengths, the second edition of the Encyclopedia covers topics, movements, arguments, and figures in normative ethics, metaethics, and applied ethics, containing over 850 fully-cross-referenced A-Z entries which emphasize the richness and diversity of the field. New to this edition are more than 300 original and updated entries which add coverage of contemporary topics including voting ethics, artificial intelligence, moral uncertainty, police bias, narcissism, structural injustice, bullying, biopolitics, legal moralism, and intellectual virtue. In its state-of-the-art electronic form, each entry is hyperlinked to other entries and to electronic editions of the renowned Blackwell Companions and Guides ¯ in all, more than 1,500 scholarly articles. The electronic version will continue to receive annual updates, continuing the legacy of the International Encyclopedia of Ethics as the preferred resource for research-active scholars, students, and general readers wanting to engage with ethics in their professional lives.
