Spring 2015 ENG 102 Resources/Assignments

Ethics and politics look at both how we should regard and accomodate each other and what kind of things make it possible to, for example, treat each other with respect and what kinds of things don't. That I might view you as "weird" or even "inhuman" (politics) may very much dictate how I then treat you (ethics). When we examine more closely how we think about the world, it turns out that ethics and politics are inseperable. (21) -- Veronique Pin-Fat "How Do We Begin to Think About the World?" (2014)
