What is ethics? Is it a system of transcendent moral imperatives, or can it be produced by ordinary people in everyday life? Do the daily rules of interaction constitute a code of ethics? In The Culture of Ethics, renowned anthropologists Franco La Cecla and Piero Zanini address these questions in a series of thought-provoking reflections that draw their inspiration from diverse sources, ranging from fieldwork in Papua New Guinea to cinematic depictions of the Ten Commandments. An engaging and accessible contribution to the emerging interest in "ordinary ethics," The Culture of Ethics explores what anthropology has to offer on the question of how we ought to live.
