Summary
"Modern Ethics in 77 Arguments explores long-standing ethical and moral issues in light of our most urgent dilemmas. Divided into twelve sections, the book opens with a series of broad arguments on existence, human nature and morality. Indeed, "big" questions of the human condition are explored by some of our best-known and most accomplished living philosophers: What is the meaning of our existence? Should we really "do what we love"? How should we respond to evil? Is pure altruism possible?" -- From book jacket.

Summary
Friedman discusses how the key to understanding the 21st century is understanding that the planet's three largest forces -- Moore's law (technology), the market (globalization) and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loos) -- are accelerating all at once. And these accelerations are transforming the five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. Friedman posits that we should purposely "be late" -- we should pause to appreciate the amazing historical epoch we're passing through and to reflect on its possibilities and dangers-- adapted from page [4] cover.

Summary
What values should we consider universal and worth preserving for posterity? Do we need a new paradigm of civil and global interaction, or are the best answers to current human problems still found in long-standing moral traditions - even if they are subjective and disparate? This program spotlights scholars and philosophers who explore profound questions of ethics, morality, evil, and idealism. Insight comes from moral philosopher Susan Neiman, author of Evil in Modern Thought: An Alternative History of Philosophy and Moral Clarity: A Guide for Grown-Up Idealists; South African poet Antjie Krog, recipient of the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation Award (2000); Canadian intellectual Charles Taylor, author of A Secular Age; Quranic scholar Nasr Abu Zayd, who left Egypt after fundamentalists declared him apostate; and others.
