Why
a Center for Ethics at Lehigh?
We are daily reminded of ethical lapses of leaders in government, business, academia, and other professions, and of moral challenges confronting individuals, groups, institutions, nations, and the global communities. Conversation about moral complexity in local, national, and international affairs is desperately inadequate due in large part to modern communication systems and the politicization of media outlets.
What
is ethics?
Ethics is concerned with issues of action, character, and governing values, with questions about right and wrong, good and evil, worthiness and unworthiness, justice and injustice, with matters of individual and collective responsibility, respect and discrimination, war and peace, and the norms and habits that make us and the world better or worse.
