Editors Note The author of Virtues and Values: An Introduction to Ethics shows readers how to develop a moral imagination--and have fun doing it--as he demolishes the cliches of religion and psychotherapy and entices readers into looking at the small actions that make up the big picture of character and values.
Editors Note 1 ?The perfect handbook for understanding what constitutes moral relations with friends, enemies, and one?s own self.? ?Booklist In an age when most of us spend more time thinking about what movie we?ll see than about how we want to lead our lives, nothing could be more timely and helpful than Everyday Ethics. In this refreshingly original book, Joshua Halberstam shows us how to develop a moral imagination?and have fun while doing it. Halberstam demolishes the clichés of both religion and psychotherapy and entices us into looking at the small actions that make up the big picture of our character and values. Should we really refrain from making judgments? Should we let our conscience be our guide even if it urges us not to pay our taxes? Halberstam has something intriguing to say about these and many other issues. Witty and entertaining, Everyday Ethics is the moral equivalent of an aerobic dance session, as exhilarating as it is instructive.
Editors Note 2 A guide to solving real-life dilemmas debunks time-honored cliche? of religion and psychotherapy to encourage readers to develop a moral imagination. 25,000 first printing.
