Will meat eaters get into heaven? Do trees have rights? Is it ever right to design a baby? What would you do? Would you always do the right thing? Is there a right thing? In this second edition of his thought-provoking and highly engaging introduction to ethics, Martin Cohen brings us eleven brand new ethical dilemmas including:

The Dodgy Donor Clinic

The Famous Footbridge Dilemma

The Human Canonball.

From overcrowded lifeboats to the censor's pen, Martin Cohen's stimulating and amusing dilemmas reveal the subtleties, complexities and contradictions that make up the rich tapestry of ethics. From DIY babies and breeding experiments to 'Twinkies courtroom drama' and Newgate Prison, there is a dilemma for everyone. This book may not help you become a good person, but at least you will have had a good think about it.

Review: 101 Ethical Dilemmas

User Review  - Holmes - Goodreads

The dilemmas are sometimes thought-provoking, but the discussions do not help in resolving the conflicts. The book's author does declare that his job is not to provide answers, but I expected to get more clear explanations than hundreds of quotes from philosophers. Read full review

Review: 101 Ethical Dilemmas

User Review  - Liam Pike - Goodreads

Great thought-stimulating content on a subject which is as perplexing and dynamic as one can be... an entertaining read encompassing many of philosophies most celebrated ideas, relating them to our world's context. Read full review
