The Moral Imagination and Public Life
Raising the Ethical Question



January 1991 | 176 pages | CQ Press
Thomas E. McCollough explores the relationship of personal values to public policy, and he poses the concept of moral community as the vital link between the concerned citizen and the body politic. He delineates a collective vision of the public good that might be brought to bear on policy issues such as health care, education, civil liberties, and the environment.

This provides a really interesting analysis of applied morality and ethics. It is useful for students of philosophy, philosophy of education and education as either a background to the ethics of their everyday lives or their practice.
