About this product
- DescriptionThis book is an updated version of the second in a series that illustrate the application of ethical thinking to business, management and computing. The authors are professional philosophers, teachers, researchers and practitioners, with a particular approach that will appeal to pedagogic and scholarly interests, as well as to more general readers. Some of the authors are faculty members at Liverpool Hope University; some are w faculty members at University Campus Suffolk, while others are directly connected with those authors belonging to such establishments in their teaching and research. This book brings together some significant areas of leading-edge research and scholarship in the context of engagement with communities of practice, locally, regionally and professionally, with international students, police, teachers, housing managers, and ambulance workers. The chapters are based in the practical experience of the contributors, but written in an accessible way. There is a strong intercultural and transnational flavour. The book is explicitly cross-disciplinary, and will appeal to readers from areas like organization analysis, project management, computer studies and information systems, as well as philosophy and ethics.
