View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

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.

Review:

I read the entire manuscript with a smile, all in one sitting while my dinner was in the oven, hoping it would not burn before I got to the end. Marks' experience will appeal to philosophers, his examples and informal tone, to students, and his eloquence to all who love language and a well-turned phrase.--Kristen Aronson, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Western Connecticut State University

Synopsis:
