The Essence of Ethics

  • ETHICS AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS: A PRIMER Author(s): Joel H. Rosenthal Part I of this primer by Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal examines Background and Theories: Ethics as Practice, Ethics in Three Dimensions, Realism Reconsidered, and Legitimacy. Part II looks at Concepts and Methodologies: Pluralism, Rights and Responsibilities, Fairness, and Normative Shift.

Rosenthal If we accept leadership as goal-driven and compromise-ridden, then we see that ethics should not be a peripheral to any public policy curriculum or program of leadership development. Ethics is neither a luxury nor a hurdle to be cleared. It is central to decision-making and leadership itself.
