The man behind The New York Times Magazine's immensely popular "The Ethicist" column casts a critical eye on today's manners and mores with a provocative, thematic collection of advice on miscellany ethical conundrums of life.

The columns are supplemented with reactions from readers both pro and con, as well as observations from other "ethicists", including the author's mom. The Good, The Bad & The Difference is divided into seven sections: Civic Life (what we do in public), Family Life (what we do at home), Social Life (what we do in other people's homes), Commercial Life (what we do in situations where money is a factor), Medical Life (the rights and obligations of parents and caregivers), Work Life (ethics for the professional sphere), and School Life (moral questions from and about those in education). Each section provides a window into how people live today and sheds light on the ways in which a more ethical approach to the decisions people make and how their daily behavior can make a big difference in the way they live.

Excellent resource for courses in the philosophy of ethics and for students involved in debate and ethics competitions.

"Cohen...answers these ethical questions with intelligence, sensibility, and a healthy dose of wit."—Booklist (American Library Association)
