A Note about Selections

Reading selections in this collection of papers often have deletions of text im passim; consequently, the ideas of the writers are examined out of their literary and historical context. Nevertheless, the main focus for our approach to ethics, is not so much for historical understanding as it is for sparking interest in thinking about our well being and significance.

In general, as the difficulty of the reading increases, the length of the selection decreases. The primary consideration of selection and inclusion for this volume is to introduce primary sources accessible for a wide variety of readers, including high school and homeschooling students. In addition to this core set of readings, supplementary readings are in process. These readings are longer, more complete, and sparsely edited.
