TERP will contain an on-line précis of contemporary moral philosophy, normative ethical theory and meta-ethics. TERP’s comprehensiveness will allow users to get an overview and detailed information about one particular domain of application, but also to search for information across different areas of application and across different types of entries. For example, issues related to privacy, informed consent, and conflicts of interest occur in almost all professions and in a number of contexts. In the course of 2008 and 2009 the following areas will be covered: (1) Business & Economics, (2) Crime & Corruption, (3) Life Sciences & Health, (4) Information & Communication, (5) War & Violence, (6) Ethics Theory and (7) Technology & Engineering. Members of the Advisory Board for TERP include Onora O’Neill and Peter Singer. Prof. James Griffin, Emeritus White’s Professor Moral Philosophy in Oxford and President of the British Society for Applied Philosophy, is chair of the Advisory Board.
