The Ordinary Virtues: Moral Order in a Divided World by Michael Ignatieff | Conversation Starters
Moral philosopher Michael Ignatieff goes around the globe with a question in mind -- “Is globalization drawing us together morally?” This question takes him to New York, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, Bosnia, Myanmar, Fukushima, and South Africa. He looks into the local realities of communities in these areas to see how the people are dealing with the stresses that globalization has brought into their lives. What answers does he find?
Winner of the 2018 Zocalo Book Prize, The Ordinary Virtues is cited for its optimism, reminding us that individual human beings are capable of healing a divided world.
