“As someone who travels extensively in the Far East, this book really gave me
confidence about sticking up for my own values whilst respecting those of my
hosts.” Geoff Clarke
“An important new work in the interculturalist
field.” Maggie Stones
What are the origins of our moral sense, and what
do neuroscience and moral philosophy tell us about them? What role might
prejudice and empathy have had in human evolution, and how does this knowledge
help us make practical decisions in our everyday lives?
In this new book by
Alan Cornes, the author takes us on a journey that starts out from an
intercultural perspective and leads to an improved understanding of how we
navigate the moral maze in a world of widely different cultural norms. It
provides practical methods of how we can make good decisions in tune with our
own values, whilst being respectful of others’.
Written in a clear, engaging
and witty way, this book will help readers faced with a moral dilemma, those
unsure of how to behave in foreign lands and a general audience looking to
explore their own moral sense.
