Applied ethics, a subdiscipline of philosophy, lends itself to an encyclopedia format because of the many industries and intellectual fields that it encompasses. < B> The Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics< /B> is based on twelve major categories, such as Biomedical Ethics and Environmental Ethics. Religious traditions that embody normative beliefs, as well as classical theories of ethics, are explored in a non-judgmental manner. Each of the twelve categories is divided into discrete areas that are covered by 5,000-6,000 word articles. Each of the 281 articles begins with a definition of the subject and includes a table of contents, glossary of key terms, and bibliography. Second- and third- level headings, boxes, sidebars, and the like emphasize the reference-oriented nature of the material. The four volumes are arranged in an A-Z format, with a complete subject index at the end of the last volume. Articles are written by international experts, arranged alphabetically by title, not by subject, and cross-referenced so the reader can locate relevant information in other articles. Key Features* Written by international experts* The most complete compilation of accessible information available* Cross-references appear in each article to refer readers to related information* A glossary and bibliography in each article provide readers with tools for learning and creative thinking* International list of contributors ensure that readers worldwide recognize familiar ethical situations and applications* Website augments the < B> Encyclopedia< /B> 's usefulness by locating additional resources and data
