The big book about all moral issues in everyday life

We all want to be good people. We all know what we actually ought to do. But then it comes down to details: Is it alright to fare-dodge if the ticket machine is broken? Is it alright to lie if the situation demands it? Do I have to invest my money ethically?
Like no other, Rainer Erlinger, a moral instance and author of the now classic column “The Conscience Question” in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, knows the specific moral issues that trouble us all. And now he has finally set down his grand plan for morals for our times – perfect for everyday life, saturated with examples, grounded in philosophy, easy to understand and entertaining.
