Description - The Code For Global Ethics by Rodrigue Tremblay

This book offers a positive and thought-provoking discussion of ten of the principle ideals of humanist philosophy. Humanists have long contended that morality is a strictly human concern and should be independent of religious creeds and dogma. In "The Code for Global Ethics", distinguished economist Rodrigue Tremblay has created a code of global ethics that further elaborates ten humanist principles designed for a world community that is growing ever closer. In the face of the obvious challenges to international stability - from nuclear proliferation, environmental degradation, economic turmoil, and reactionary and sometimes violent religious movements - a code based on 'natural dignity and inherent worth of all human beings' is needed more than ever. Tremblay delves into the issues surrounding these ten humanist principles: preserving individual dignity and equality, respecting life and property, tolerance, sharing, preventing domination of others, eliminating superstition, conserving the natural environment, resolving differences cooperatively without resort to violence or war, political and economic democracy, and providing for universal education.
