Challenges and Pleasures: Living Ethically in a Competitive World

Barbara Cutney
University Press of America

With prevalent life issues—stress, addictions, loneliness, health, and violence, to name a few—as its point of departure, Challenges and Pleasures sets out to explain the various roles values and ethics can play for us. It proceeds by demonstrating how the quality of our lives and living morally are inextricably bound. As part of this explanatory process, the text investigates the nature of values and an ethical life. Written in a colloquial voice, the book employs numerous examples of everyday situations encountered by many individual people to serve in its exposition of ideas. End Notes refer the reader to sources which inspired many of the notions within the book, allowing the reader to explore the issues from other points of view and in greater depth.
