Social Ethics: An Examination of American Moral Traditions

Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, 01.01.1990 - 213 Seiten

Roger Betsworth introduces ethics by focusing on the cultural narratives that shape American images of self and world: the biblical story, the American gospel of success, the idea of wellbeing, and the global mission of America. These cultural narratives display the ways in which the sense of self and world, and therefore ethical vision, is fundamentally conflicted.
