New Book: Ethical Decision-Making

Kirchschlaeger, Peter G. (2023): Ethical Decision-Making, Baden-Baden.
German edition

Ethical decision-making challenges us every day - be it in our private or professional lives, be it on an organisational or institutional level, be it in a political or economic context. The textbook encourages ethical decision-making with ease and argumentative elegance - in the following four steps (SAMBA):

  1. See and Understand the Reality
  2. Analyze the Reality from a Moral Standpoint
  3. Be the Ethical Judge!
  4. Act Accordingly!
