More Information
The Concise Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics in the Social Sciences is an in-depth exploration of ethics across multiple different fields. Editors Tuija Takala and Matti Häyry collate entries from global experts to provide an incisive look into applied ethics on both methodological and theoretical bases.

Covering a vast array of disciplines, this prescient Encyclopedia analyzes the many roles that applied ethics plays in the social sciences. Entries scrutinize the various manifestations of ethics across a range of disciplines and subdisciplines such as animal studies, criminology, and global health. The entries on sociology, social psychology, welfare economics, and corporate social responsibility discuss historical development through ethical concepts, while entries such as conflict studies, strategic management and future studies seek to predict future paradigm changes. On the theoretical level, the framing of research questions also entails ethical choices, which is emphasized in the entries for archaeology, food system studies, global health, and migration studies.

This thought-provoking Encyclopedia is a crucial resource for scholars of economic thought and methodology, legal philosophy, human rights, politics and public policy research, and sociology and sociological theory. It will also benefit those researching and working across the social sciences more broadly.

Key Features:

• Flexible interdisciplinary approach
• International point of entry into applied ethics in the social sciences
• 57 authors representing a wide variety of fields in the social sciences
• 35 in-depth entries organized alphabetically for accessibility and ease of navigation
Critical Acclaim
‘This Encyclopedia fills a gap and offers a valuable working tool not only to applied ethics scholars, but also to the wider academic community. The range of topics addressed is vast and covers all sectors of applied ethics, starting from the more traditional ones and ending with new and so far little explored sectors. The style of the Encyclopedia is clear, flowing and pleasant to read, without losing anything in terms of scientific in-depth analysis. The scholars involved in the work, skillfully orchestrated by Takala and Häyry, are all of high academic value.’
– Fabrizio Turoldo, Ca'' Foscari University of Venice, Italy

‘This rich and enlightening Encyclopedia is an immensely useful resource for social scientists, ethicists and others. In entries ranging from Addiction Studies to Welfare Economics, it reveals with brilliant clarity and depth the diverse and fruitful ways in which applied ethics goes to work in different areas of social research.’
– Garðar Ágúst Árnason, University of Akureyri, Iceland

‘This is a uniquely informative and insightful source of knowledge on the plethora of ways in which applied ethics is intertwined with the theory and practice of the social sciences.’
– Thomasine Kushner, Program in Medicine and Human Values, Sutter Health
