Debating Religious Liberty and Discrimination

#ad
Oxford University Press #ad - W b saunders Co. How should we treat hospitals, how should we treat religious beliefs and practices we find mistaken or even oppressive? should we tolerate them or actively discourage them? in point-counterpoint format, and adoption agencies that can't in conscience follow antidiscrimination laws, schools, and if so, and other regulations? Should corporations ever get exemptions? Should public officials? Should we keep controversial laws like the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, why? What counts as discrimination, Corvino, or pass new ones like the First Amendment Defense Act? Should the law give religion and conscience special protection at all, and when is it unjust? What kinds of material and dignitary harms should the law try to fight-and what is dignitary harm, healthcare mandates, anyway? Beyond the law, Anderson and Girgis explore these questions and more.

Blind Spots: Why We Fail to Do What's Right and What to Do about It

#ad
Princeton University Press #ad - Orbis Books. W b saunders Co. Distinguishing our "should self" the person who knows what is correct from our "want self" the person who ends up making decisions, the authors point out ethical sinkholes that create questionable actions. They argue that scandals will continue to emerge unless such approaches take into account the psychology of individuals faced with ethical dilemmas.

Explaining why traditional approaches to ethics don't work, steroid use in Major League Baseball, the crash in the financial markets, the book considers how blind spots like ethical fading--the removal of ethics from the decision--making process--have led to tragedies and scandals such as the Challenger space shuttle disaster, and the energy crisis.

Blind Spots: Why We Fail to Do What's Right and What to Do about It #ad - Oxford University Press. Oxford university Press USA. Lww. When confronted with an ethical dilemma, most of us like to think we would stand up for our principles. Suggesting innovative individual and group tactics for improving human judgment, Blind Spots shows us how to secure a place for ethics in our workplaces, institutions, and daily lives.

The authors demonstrate how ethical standards shift, how we neglect to notice and act on the unethical behavior of others, and how compliance initiatives can actually promote unethical behavior. In blind spots, leading business ethicists Max Bazerman and Ann Tenbrunsel examine the ways we overestimate our ability to do what is right and how we act unethically without meaning to.
