Reviewer: Professor George Carew, a renown philosopher and former Vice Chancellor of United Methodist University who thoroughly reviewed the manuscript and helped to increase clarity of some of the concepts it presents, has this to say:
“This is an in-depth study of the field of ethics, rarely found in introductory studies of ethics or morals. There are two parts to the book: The Theory of Ethics and Applied Ethics. The student is given the opportunity to apply ethical principles to the workplace and everyday challenges. It exposes the student to several areas, such as business ethics, medical ethics, and legal ethics. Professionals in the medical, legal, and business areas are now exposed to the underlying moral issues of their professions.
This book is recommended not only for students in the humanities but for all of our professional schools in Sierra Leone and elsewhere.”
