Ethics & the Importance of Culture is a new way of thinking about personal ethics and culture.
Ethics is about how we relate to each other and it’s personal! It happens everyday and is there with us every time we see, talk to, or meet another person. Yet most of us don’t really understand it and think it isn’t relevant to us. Ethics and the Importance of Culture is an attempt to change that.
Ethics and the Importance of Culture will bring into the warm firesides of our homes philosophers who have been left out in the cold for far too long. Levinas, Gadamer and Sartre have a great deal to offer everyone, and an enormous amount to say about ethics but, we can admit, their writing is not easy to digest. Ethics and the Importance of Culture aims to cut through the difficulties of their prose and style to present their ideas in a way that can be understood – the ideas themselves are not complicated!
Another unique element to Ethics & the Importance of Culture is in the use art, film, literature, music and other cultural forms. These cultural forms give example to the philosophical ideas, with each one relating specifically to the preceding post. So, the posts in Ethics & the Importance of Culture can be read all together like a book, or in couplets, or even as individual essays.
The final dimension to Ethics & the Importance of Culture is the inclusion of a vast array of stimulating and pertinent images to give visual illustration to the content of the text. It is hoped that this will enable a rich absorption of the ideas and also provide a more engaging and open way of learning to think about ethics.
