Explores how our day to day dilemmas may fit into the wider context of the big moral issues. Drawing on a range of thinkers from the past, the book explores the way such practical questions of behaviour have been approached in past centuries. This provides the modern reader with a framework of reference to get their bearings and begin to develop a personal response to the task of 'doing the right thing'. The book covers questions such as What is fairness?, Should I always tell the truth?, What are the moralities of war?, What are my ecological responsibilities to the planet? and Is the good bound to win in the end?
