A Companion to Ethics Paperback
Edited by Peter Singer
Part of the Blackwell Companions to Philosophy series
In this volume, some of todaya s most distinguished philosophers survey the whole field of ethics, from its origins, through the great ethical traditions, to theories of how we ought to live, arguments about specific ethical issues, and the nature of ethics itself.
The book can be read straight through from beginning to end; yet the inclusion of a multi--layered index, coupled with a descriptive outline of contents and bibliographies of relevant literature, means that the volume also serves as a work of reference, both for those coming afresh to the study of ethics and for readers already familiar with the subject.

Review by heidilove
Oxford's encyclopedia is, well, encyclopedic, while this book helps put the various schools of thought in a meaningful context withing the framework of ethics and philosophy. Nicely done.
