Ethics and Identity
by Timothy Leet
Ethics and Identity provides a strong but flexible framework for exploring moral identity and developing ethical decision-making skills. Written with the older adolescent reader in mind, Ethics and Identity is designed to help young people successfully navigate the increasing complexity of their lives. Too old to be called "good kids" but not yet equipped for the burdens of moral adulthood, adolescents need more sophisticated tools for working through difficult decisions than the simple slogans of childhood. This book was written in response to that need.
The text is easy to comprehend. Examples are drawn from real-life dilemmas experienced by adolescents everywhere. The book itself is visually engaging and original in its approach. From classical Greece up to today's research around implicit bias and modern happiness studies, Ethics and Identity aims to be much more than another introduction to the Big Ideas in moral theory. Students will learn in this book how these ideas have an immediate impact on the emerging character of the young adults they are becoming.
Each of the book's twenty chapters begins with guiding questions and concludes with going-further questions to fuel discussion. Ethics and Identity is ideally suited to give shape to an advisory program, supplement a Health curriculum, or frame a unique course designed with character and identity exploration in mind.
