?The book leaves...positive impressions, especially for those working in the area of public policy... Throughout the book, Weber provides those in the area of public policy and leadership with an approach (experimentalism) that will allow them to reach different conclusions... What is also fascinating is the way in which he deals with areas that are seen as somewhat 'out of the box' when it comes to public policy and morality as a study under philosophy... The author has articulated his point clearly.? ?Eugene Baron, University of the Western Cape, Ethical Perspectives
?Morality, Leadership, and Public Policy is written in an engaging manner. So filled is it with clear and powerfully compelling ideas and suggestions that one cannot read the book without finding oneself examining one's habitual ways of approaching difficulties and seeking new possibilities for meaningful collaboration with others in fashioning public policy. Although Weber writes explicitly for philosophers, his work can also be read with benefit by non philosophers who are concerned with the moral dimensions of public policy and leadership. Morality, Leadership, and Public Policy is, accordingly, a suitable and desirable acquisition for both academic and public libraries.? ?Royce P. Jones, Illinois College, Journal of Speculative Philosophy (Vol. 26, No. 1)
?Vegetarianism...sums up the different viewpoints and ethical discussions clearly and concisely... It is a guide for those who are new to the debate and want a clear overview of the arguments... It is a good read for students in need of an understanding of the debate surrounding vegetarianism, and especially animal rights, and given its elaborate bibliography it can also function as a book of reference. Equally, given its accessible language and readability, it is also interesting for a wider audience.? ? Kristien Hens, Maastricht University, Ethical Perspectives
Informed by the pragmatism of John Dewey, this book argues the practical benefits for public policy of a rigorous experimentalist approach to applying moral theory. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description
