The book reflects academically on important and relevant ethical fields from a multidimensional South African context. It wants to add academic-ethical value, locally and globally, with its different points of departure deeply embedded in justice. From a mainly qualitative methodological perspective, this scholarly book demonstrates that ethics requires analytical, thinking and critical people who in an existentially and emancipatory way can help make the world a more just, decent and humane place in which to live. The co-authors who represent different academic and cultural backgrounds, present in respective chapters their research systematically, intersectionally and constructivistically, based on profound theoretical analysis and reasoning. This epistemology results in an act of knowing that actively gives meaning and order to the reality to which it is responding. By doing this, they point out that people are in an ongoing process of becoming more human – allowing ourselves and our fellow human beings to flourish, and to reach fuller potential through justice-based ethical reflection and action. The content of this collected work is innovative by addressing the shortage of academic books regarding these specific ethical fields and themes, grouped together in one volume. The fact that it is written from a diverse but inclusive South African perspective, enhances its richness. The book challenges conventional borders from different ethical, theological, philosophical, economic and cultural perspectives with insight and expertise. Its target audience is international scholars, peers, researchers and educators with an interest in ethics, especially the specific ethical fields covered in this book. I can confirm that all the chapters are based on original research and that no part of the book was plagiarised from another publication, or published elsewhere.
