A Grammar of Responsibility
Crossroad Pub. Co. (1996)
|Abstract||[From Library Journal:] Moran (culture and communication, New York Univ.) is widely known for his many writings on religious education. In the tradition of popular philosophy, he asks what it means to speak of "responsibility" and makes an important distinction between being responsible to and being responsible for. In language accessible to all readers, he considers some current arguments about responsibility, e.g., the responsibility of present-day Germans for the Holocaust or Americans for Hiroshima, and tries to clarify the issue of language as an entry into clarifying the moral issues themselves. He treats not only interhuman issues, including how we are responsible to/for the past and the future and how corporate entities like businesses can be said to be responsible, but also of responsibility to/for the environment. Moran's work is a reasoned and reasonable consideration of an important but often misunderstood topic. - Augustine J. Curley, Newark Abbey, N.J. (Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.)|
