1 . Morality Revisited
Posted January 23, 2013 by Janos Bozsik -Editor , South Africa. Most writers and speakers seem rather vague about the intended application of their offering: Are they providing structured guidance that can be used by educators in the classroom to awaken a moral sensitivity in the youth; or, are they just lamenting what is missing? Then I come across a book titled, Stepping Stones, by Bryan Britton. Published in 2010 and available from xlibris,loot,amazon,google,kindle, barnes & noble and ebay.
This "anthology of moral wisdom" is a well categorised collection of ethical common sense. And that's what I like about it. This book is not offering a trite technique to transcend temptation and there are enough self-help soft covers out there. This book is not a whiney whinge of what is not working; it is not a critical cacophony of complaints and there is enough senseless sensationalism out there. This book is not entirely neutral either; it is neither unbiased nor reserved as the author has his say.
And that is what I like about the book. It is a record of ancient, classical and contemporary moral quotes and anecdotes and a reminder of the lessons never learned. As the author states, "The benefits of learning, character building, moral education and religion were lost in the turmoil of the 1980s and 1990s, resulting in a rudderless, sometimes murderous element, pervading South African society." Stepping Stones serves as a reminder â it serves as a silver lining. It tells us what we can and could and it refrains from preachy prattle about what we shall and should.
That is why I enjoyed reading the book.
I strongly urge teachers, learners and students (even the parents) to purchase a copy of Stepping Stones. The money goes for a good cause â and the content conveys a message we are all sorely lacking.
