Description

A distinguished religious leader's "brilliant, urgent" (The Washington Post) case for reconstructing a shared framework of  values.

With liberal democracy embattled, our public discourse growing increasingly toxic, family life breaking down, and drug abuse and depression on the rise, many fear what the future holds. In Morality, respected faith leader and public intellectual Jonathan Sacks traces today's crisis to our loss of a strong, shared moral code and our elevation of self-interest over the common good. Sacks leads readers from ancient Greece to the Enlightenment to the present day to show that there is no liberty without morality and no freedom without responsibility, arguing that we all must play our part in rebuilding a common moral foundation.  
 
A major work of philosophy, this is an inspiring vision of a world in which we can all find our place and face the future without fear.
