In modern Western societies we are presented with a huge array of choices and encouraged to believe that having the freedom to choose sets us on the path to happiness. Yet, as renowned social commentator Hugh Mackay shows in RIGHT & WRONG, freedom to choose is no freedom at all unless it is accompanied by the confidence of knowing we have made the right choice.
In this insightful book, Hugh Mackay suggests some personal strategies that will make it easier to work out what is right and wrong for you whenever you are confronted by a moral choice.
In an engaging, conversational style Mackay confidently tackles the moral minefield of personal relationships, business ethics, the difference between ?legal? and ?ethical?, morality and religion (and why they should not be confused), the benefits of moral mindfulness and the reasons why we should strive for a good life in which we are true to ourselves and sensitive to the wellbeing of others who might be affected by our actions.
