Abstract

Are there limits to cultural diversity? Does an animal have rights? Do we overlook the implications of stem cell technology? Do the public media have their own accountability? Does sport go together with gene therapy? Is ' global governance ' an answer on the instability of the world after 9/11? At the beginning of the 21st century, we are faced daily with these and other ethical questions. In our pluralist society, in which divergent views coexist with each other, no one ethical approach can offer us a unique vision. In Ethics - from DNA to 9/11, the authors scrutinize a number of ethical issues and help the readers arrive at their own conclusion. This is a unique title for everyone who wishes to be informed thoroughly and reliably on the way in which ethical questions are handled nowadays. With contributions from Govert den Hartogh, Guido Pennings, Michiel Korthals, Ronald Commers, Paul Cliteur, Amade M'Charek, Frans Jacobs, Hugo van den Enden, Hub Zwart, Peter Derkx, Sigrid Sterx, Rob van Es and Rik Coolsaet.
