Values: What They are & how We Know Them
What's wrong with our schools and society in general is that we just don't teach values anymore! We often see this lament on the editorial pages of leading newspapers and magazines, on TV news programs, and on popular talk shows. But how many of us can state clearly what a value is? John T Goldthwait draws on his thirty years of teaching experience to fill an urgent public need for a well-reasoned popular book on this vital subject. By making use of entertaining, everyday situations, he helps us identify and understand the values we hold. But more importantly, Goldthwait shows us how to form them, use them, and justify them against the competing values of others.
