Organized around five basic areas of inquiry — political philosophy, moral philosophy, logic, epistemology, and aesthetics — this book examines critical issues in social work such as ethics, the allocation of limited resources, and the role of government in social welfare.

Max Siporin

This is an original, pathbreaking book. . . . Reamer provides an illuminating discussion of the philosophical positions, questions, and debates that operate in social work practice. . . . The plentiful illustrations and references to social work practice situations, questions, and dilemmas add to the book´s value as a basic text for social work students, educators, and practitioners.
