Why is a certain behavior considered
ethical? By what processes does a certain behavior become ethical? Why are some
people more capable of behaving ethically? This book discusses questions such
as these with the help of the perspectives drawn from three distinct fields:
Religion, Philosophy and Neuroscience. Theorists from the ancient to the recent
– from the Buddha and Socrates to Antonio Damasio – are covered.
