An keinem Teil seines Werks lag Albert Schweitzer mehr als an seinem Beitrag zur Philosophie. Doch die ihm gebührende Wirkung mußte ausbleiben, weil nach seinen beiden philosophischen Büchern von 1923, der Kulturkritik (Kulturphilosophie I) und der Ethik (Kulturphilosophie II) - heute zusammengefaßt unter dem Titel `Kultur und Ethik` -, kein weiteres mehr erschien. Hier wird aus dem Nachlaß die Fortsetzung veröffentlicht, an der Albert Schweitzer 14 Jahre lang, von 1931 - 1945, gearbeitet hat. Der Leser kann jetzt die Linien des Schweitzerischen Denkens über die Erstlingsschriften hinaus verfolgen. Sichtbar wird dabei der eindrucksvolle Versuch, die Ethik zu einer `Weltphilosophie`, zu einer quer durch die Kulturen akzeptierbaren Deutung von Leben und Kosmos auszubauen. Albert Schweitzer wird spätestens mit dieser Veröffentlichung als bedeutender Philosoph unseres Jahrhunderts erkennbar - in einem Werk von überraschender Aktualität.

Safety continues to be a primary concern in the food, water, and pharmaceutical industries. Written by experts in food, drug, and water safety, this book examines some of the ways in which communication has affected safety issues in the recent past and encourages discussions about what improvements can be made. In particular, it helps engineers who are directly involved in creating safety systems and procedures to communicate these designs to other engineers and to general public. Case studies to illustrate the topics, including a case study on the mad cow disease outbreak, are provided.

This book explores food from a philosophical perspective, bringing together sixteen leading philosophers to consider the most basic questions about food: What is it exactly? What should we eat? How do we know it is safe? How should food be distributed? What is good food? David M. Kaplan’s erudite and informative introduction grounds the discussion, showing how philosophers since Plato have taken up questions about food, diet, agriculture, and animals. However, until recently, few have considered food a standard subject for serious philosophical debate. Each of the essays in this book brings in-depth analysis to many contemporary debates in food studies—Slow Food, sustainability, food safety, and politics—and addresses such issues as "happy meat," aquaculture, veganism, and table manners. The result is an extraordinary resource that guides readers to think more clearly and responsibly about what we consume and how we provide for ourselves, and illuminates the reasons why we act as we do.

One of the leading ethical thinkers of the modern age, Peter Singer has repeatedly been embroiled in controversy. Protesters in Germany closed down his lectures, mistakenly thinking he was advocating Nazi views on eugenics. Conservative publisher Steve Forbes withdrew generous donations to Princeton after Singer was appointed professor of bioethics. His belief that infanticide is sometimes morally justified has appalled people from all walks of life. Peter Singer Under Fire gives a platform to his critics on many contentious issues. Leaders of the disability rights group Not Dead Yet attack Singer’s views on disability and euthanasia. Economists criticize the effectiveness of his ideas for solving global poverty. Philosophers expose problems in Singer’s theory of utilitarianism and ethicists refute his position on abortion. Singer’s engaging “Intellectual Autobiography” explains how he came by his controversial views, while detailed replies to each critic reveal further surprising aspects of his unique outlook.

Yuval Noah Harari ist der Weltstar unter den Historikern. In «Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit» erzählte er vom Aufstieg des Homo Sapiens zum Herrn der Welt. In «Homo Deus» ging es um die Zukunft unserer Spezies. Sein neues Buch schaut auf das Hier und Jetzt und konfrontiert uns mit den drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit. Wie unterscheiden wir Wahrheit und Fiktion im Zeitalter der Fake News? Was sollen wir unseren Kindern beibringen? Wie können wir in unserer unübersichtlichen Welt moralisch handeln? Wie bewahren wir Freiheit und Gleichheit im 21. Jahrhundert? Seit Jahrtausenden hat die Menschheit über den Fragen gebrütet, wer wir sind und was wir mit unserem Leben anfangen sollen. Doch jetzt setzen uns die heraufziehende ökologische Krise, die wachsende Bedrohung durch Massenvernichtungswaffen und der Aufstieg neuer disruptiver Technologien unter Zeitdruck. Bald schon wird irgendjemand darüber entscheiden müssen, wie wir die Macht nutzen, die künstliche Intelligenz und Biotechnologie bereit halten. Dieses Buch will möglichst viele Menschen dazu anregen, sich an den großen Debatten unserer Zeit zu beteiligen, damit die Antworten nicht von den blinden Kräften des Marktes gegeben werden.
