Review

"Surrounded as we are by media on every side, few topics can be as pressing as the relation of the mass media to ethics. In this ground clearing book...Matthew Kieran provides the first sustained look at this topic by an analytic philosopher. With clarity and penetration, he examines issues ranging from journalism to pornography. His views may be sometimes controversial, but they are always stimulating and thoughtfully argued. This book opens new territory for philosophy. I predict that Kieran's book will launch a generation of media and philosophy courses throughout the English-speaking world."-Noel Carroll Monroe C. Beardsley Professor of the Philosophy of Art the University of Wisconsin at Madison

Book Description

Arguing for a philosophical approach to ethical issues in journalism and the media, this book investigates questions of impartiality; moral restrictions concerning lies; rights of privacy; and issues of violence, sex, and censorship.
