Am I Right? Or Am I Right?
Am I Right? or Am I Right? - an Introduction to Ethical Decision Making (330pp) introduces Dilemma Training – a six-step method of ethical decision making, and the moral theories relevant to it. It examines the meaning of ‘integrity’ and describes Dilemma Training in education, business, government, the media, the armed forces, and in combating substance abuse.
The book is written in a non-academic way for anyone who wants to know more about solving ethical dilemmas, and who might welcome the opportunity to look at various ethical issues in more depth without necessarily referring to an external moral authority. This book is meant for everyone who wants to be ‘morally fit’.
'This unique book has the potential to be life-changing. It challenges you to reflect on the ethics of your own behaviour and enhances awareness of the wider implications of your decisions, both in the professional and in the personal sphere. I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has ever tried to find an honest answer to the question: "Am I Right?"’
'This book seeks to overturn the traditional model of ethical codes and rules. Its central role of individual responsibility and dialogue is paramount to the capacity of any organisation, business or otherwise, to make wise decisions in the face of ethical challenges. It is difficult to think of anyone who would not be in sympathy with the author's personal stances or fail to appreciate his logic, fairness and liberalism.'
