About the Book
The adherence to the principles of ethics is essential in all walks of life for the peace and well-being of society. It is all the more required at the present juncture of society when economies are on the path of development and innovations in science and technology are achieving new heights. The study of ethics is required at present because in the wake of these developments many unhealthy trends are emerging in our social fabric. Politics has become a game without principles. People want to be rich overnight without hard work. The pursuit of science and technology is without humanity and knowledge and information is being, accumulated without any emphasis on character.
In the present book these issues are being highlighted. How to integrate ethics with economics, science and technology for the positive development of society, is the main theme of the book.
