An Intelligent Person's Guide to Ethics
In this guide to ethics, controversial even before its publication, Mary Warnock debates issues such as abortion, euthanasia, Down's Syndrome, education and genetic engineering, aiming to explain how to distinguish right from wrong. Drawing on examples from her personal and political life, she illustrates difficult cases to make her point and clarify where she stands in a thought-provoking way.
