Kpim of Morality Ethics

edited by Pantaleon Ireogbu, Anthony Echekwube

The Kpim refers to the quintessence of a given reality, hence in this context, the central ethical questions that govern human life. With reference to the particular African context and drawing on African philosophical and cultural traditions, this broad-ranging work discuses the major ethical questions pertaining to public and private spheres of life. It is divided into sections on general ethics, special ethics, professional ethics, education ethics, business ethics, life ethics, bio-ethics, medical ethics and gene ethics.

Examples of the themes addressed are: ethics in traditional African society, the ethics of African values and the ethics of the chieftancy culture; the ethics of globalisation and the ethical imperative for world peace; and ethics and health care in the developing world.
