Ethics and Culture

Ethics and Culture is a peer-reviewed book series of interest to both academics and non-academics.  Social upheaval, political rancor, and cultural battles over values can be found in every community on a variety of subjects.  As humanity tries to work through this turmoil, reflecting on the differences and disagreements between individuals, tribes, and larger overlapping cultural communities is one component to surviving the turmoil. This reflection may also provide new and better questions, radical yet sound solutions, to the root causes of the turmoil.
