Michael Lambek (editor)

2015 The Ethical Condition: Essays on Action, Person, and Value.

University of Chicago Press. http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/E/bo21263571.html

The essays in this collection point with definitive force toward a single central truth: ethics is intrinsic to social life. As Lambek shows through rich ethnographic accounts and multiple theoretical traditions, our human condition is at heart an ethical one. Detailing his trajectory as one anthropologist thinking deeply throughout his career on the nature of ethical life, the essays offer a vibrant demonstration of the relevance of ethics as practice and its crucial importance to ethnography, social theory, and philosophy.
