Can some one name me a good book that deals with ethics and its dimensions? It should deal with the basics of ethics with examples or maybe some case studies analysis.

  • You should tell us a little more about the specific concern you're after and what you've found already. That said I might suggest something like Buber's I and Thou, which should help provide context and motivations for modern ethical inquiry. (It's also good preparation for Levinas whose Totality and Infinity might be another suggestion.)

  • I know some might snort derisively but have you considered the Bible?

Unless you require a theistic ground, Peter Singer's work is strong, insightful, and specific. I'd recommend Writings on an Ethical Life, *The Life You Can Save,* and Animal Liberation. You can deductively apply the principles he develops to many concrete situations.

  • thanks for valuable information...can you please tell me some standard book on global and Indian moral thinkers, leaders , administrator.
