EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Invoking a variety of classical and contemporary models, Albert Anderson examines what it means to think and act ethically. Proceeding from the views of Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill-who created perhaps the two most influential, albeit competing, ethical frameworks-Anderson poses the choice between what we understand to be our moral duty and what will likely result in the greatest good for the majority. He applies these notions to a wide range of situations familiar to nonprofit development officers, volunteer, and organizations. His goal is to help readers rethink decision-making and the principles that guide their decisions.

Today we regularly read of egregious ethical lapses at charities where board members and key staff are unable or unwilling to confront difficult issues. This book describes the challenges facing charities, explains how they must reassess their commitment, and pushes charities to be their best. It also examines how two sectors of society - business and government - would benefit from a similar corrective journey.
