A Grammar of Responsibility

Crossroad Publishing Company, 1996 - 253 páginas
"A Grammar of Responsibility is an interesting, provocative, and careful study of the way to speak about responsibility. The term is everywhere these days but is seldom examined in any detail. And yet, responsibility is a complicated idea with a peculiar history." "The book starts from the way people speak, using hundreds of examples from contemporary discussions. It explains the need for a grammar, that is, a consistent and comprehensive way to use the term. It goes on to analyze a host of ethical dilemmas. In each case, a "grammar of responsibility" provides a fresh look at seemingly intractable problems. The result is a book of clear ideas to help us deal intelligently with the sense of moral crisis that is widespread today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
