A Question of Values seeks to answer the question, "What are my values?" It catalogs four basic mental modes: logic, sense experience, emotion, and intuition; each has an associated value system. There is a section on each value system, and readers can determine which systems most accurately describe themselves, their family, their friends and their colleagues. On one level the book explores how and why individuals choose the values they do. On another level it addresses a variety of social issues: whether values should or should not be taught in the classroom and, if so, how they can be taught without violating the freedom of choice, which underlies pluralism in our society.
