Summary "In this book, philosophers, scholars of religion, and activists address the theme of responsibility. Dr. Barbara Darling-Smith brings together a collection of essays that analyze the ethics of responsibility, its relational nature, and its global struggle. With references to Homer's Iliad and Buddhist teachings, these essays demonstrate that while selfhood is an illusion, there is still a conventional self that must be held responsible. This book finds the underlying distinctions between ultimate and conventional understandings of selfhood, which lead to variations on the role of responsibility in the community and government. With essays from CEOs to historical theologians, Responsibility offers a variety of perspectives that will captivate the interest of philosophers and scholars of ethics and religion."--BOOK JACKET.
