This clear and persuasive book examines recent developments in ethics and applies these to the practice and organisation of the caring professions. Its original approach focuses on what kind of ethical theory might be helpful for professional ethics, and explores debates from the perspectives of liberalism, feminism, ecology, postmodernism and constructivism. With ideas accessibly explained and implications explored using illustrative examples from practice contexts, it is essential reading for students and professionals.
