Ethics

The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy, Volume 1

Klaus Brinkmann, Editor

By conventional standards, the papers in this volume of The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy fall into the two broad categories of moral theory and applied ethics. However, a closer look will reveal that there is nothing conventional about them. Not only do some of the applied ethics papers challenge widely acknowledged positions in bioethics or suggest a new framework for the reconciliation of nature and culture in environmental ethics, the papers in moral theory show a remarkable preparedness to rethink traditional boundaries, positions, and methodological approaches altogether.
