This book provides an analysis of major ethical and bioethical issues like euthanasia, suicide, organ commerce and donation, sexual objectification, and abortion from the perspective of Kant’s moral theory. It deals with questions such as: Is the person who decides to commit suicide autonomous? Is euthanasia compatible with respect for humanity and dignity? Can a person’s choice to sell one of her kidneys be free? Does the prostitute reduce herself to a mere sexual object through satisfying her clients’ desires? Can the fetus’ potential for rational agency constitute an argument against abortion? Without doubt, Kant’s is one of the most important moral theories. The task of applying it to issues that concern us today leaves us with a sense of satisfaction that it has a lot to offer to contemporary philosophical thought.

Business ethics is a form of the art of applied ethics that examines ethical rules and principles within a commercial context, the various moral or ethical problems that can arise in a business setting, and any special duties or obligations that apply to persons who are engaged in commerce. Business ethics can be both a normative and a descriptive discipline. As a corporate practice and a career specialisation, the field is primarily normative. In academia descriptive approaches are also taken. The range and quantity of business ethical issues reflects the degree to which business is perceived to be at odds with non-economic social values. Historically, interest in business ethics accelerated dramatically during the 1980s and 1990s, both within major corporations and within academia. For example, today most major corporate websites lay emphasis on commitment to promoting non-economic social values under a variety of headings (e.g. ethics codes, social responsibility charters). In some cases, corporations have redefined their core values in the light of business ethical considerations. Catching business ethics in action, however, remains a seldom-spotted nugget for in reality it depends on the characters of the characters.
