- Author: Joel Marks
Originally designed for the author's introductory college-course in Ethics, Moral Moments provides an accessible, yet philosophical, study of Ethics. The book's thirty-three short essays focus on the following themes: ethics is not subjective, ethics is relevant to business and everyday life, and 'What is ethics? '. The unique format includes some previously published newspaper op-ed columns that cover everything from everyday life to headline news. The culmination of these essays is a work that argues, against the social scientific spirit of the age, that ethics has a distinct role to play in contemporary decision making. Students and the general public will find Moral Moments' personal and conversational tone refreshing, while teachers will find helpful the many classroom episodes depicted, as well as the accompanying website www.moralmoments.com.
