PREFACE

Why is a certain behavior considered ethical? By what processes does a certain behavior become ethical? Why are some people more capable of behaving ethically? This book discusses questions such as these with the help of the perspectives drawn from three distinct fields: Religion, Philosophy and Neuroscience. Theorists from the ancient to the recent - the Buddha and Socrates to Antonio Damasio - are covered.

In a way, this book is an extension of my Sociological Thought: In the Light off Krishnamurti's Philosophy (20 1 0). I would like to suggest to the readers that they also go through the ethics-related topics from that book - Karl Marx, Hegel, Herbert Spencer, Robert Michels, Kant, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Freud, Reflections on Social Order, Ayn Rand, J. Krishnamurti, and Osho and his Krishna.
