According to Lipson, we are at a critical stage in our history. It is clear that there has been a lowering of ethical standards in many sectors of our society. Both promise and peril confront humanity at this time. Along with the ability to annihilate the world, we have acquired the knowledge to improve the quality of life for more people than ever before. The author examines periods in history where similar conditions have existed, seeking to comprehend what is at stake in our present age, and calls for revolution in our ethical practices. Finally, he considers whether the current moral and ethical crisis will be resolved.
