Paperback

The practical difficulties we all face in deciding what to do for the best have a wider context. This book is about the way this morning's dilemma fits among the big moral issues. It explores the history of the way such practical questions of behaviour have been approached in past centuries. The book is divided into three parts, chapters covering questions such as:

  • What is fairness?
  • Should I always tell the truth?
  • What are the moralities of war?
  • What are my ecological responsibilities to the planet?
  • Is the good bound to win in the end?
This provides the modern reader with a framework of reference to get their bearings and begin to develop a personal response to the task of 'doing the right thing'.
