Why and Because - The Art and Science of Moral and Ethical Understanding asks the reader to be introspective.
Can you answer the questions that really matter?
How do you know what is right?
What gives a person or institution moral authority?
What is the difference between morality and ethics?
Is ethical knowledge universal?
We all have strong emotions in response to moral matters. How can we be sure our responses are correct? If ethical knowledge is universal, why is there so much disagreement on how to treat one another?
An afternoon with this book will enable you to put words to your feelings, allowing you to derive ethical truth in any circumstance, and convince others you are right...once you convince yourself that is.
