In this book, Arnold Green discusses the standards that define moral appraisal. Standards assume roles of conduct (however contradictory the rules may be) which can be imposed during socialization only within the traditional family. Otherwise, the basis of order, which is not collective but individual, is undermined by the extreme degree of disaffection we now face. All the panaceas offered, and in some cases enforced, by one intellectual minority or another, will inevitably have a destructive impact upon our communication with one another. Contents: Perception and Ideology; Self and Family; Relativism and the Family Institution; Religion as Vital Force; Social Class and Prejudice.
