Philosophy & Religion • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2009

The author’s friendly voice and relaxed tone work well in delivering his accessible ideas on the foundations of everyday morality. His meta-analysis of how we make moral judgments describes three possible goals for individual actions and public policy—practical utilitarianism, the preservation of individual rights, and the optimizing of the collective good. This work is an appealing invitation for listeners to use more scrutiny regarding their own actions as well as those of politicians and media personalities. The depth and total absence of righteousness in the author’s writing and vocal tone make this an essential lesson for anyone interested in promoting individual virtue and social justice.
