An Ethic of Mutual Respect PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

An Ethic of Mutual Respect free pdf Over the course of a century until the late 1700s, the British Crown, the Iroquois, and other Aboriginal groups of eastern North America developed an alliance and treaty system known as the Covenant Chain. Bruce Morito offers a philosophical rereading of the historical record of negotiations, showing that the parties developed an ethic of mutually recognised respect. This ethic, Morito argues, remains relevant to current debates over Aboriginal and treaty rights, because it is neither culturally nor historically bound. Real change is possible, if efforts can be shifted from piecemeal legal and political disputes to the development of an intercultural ethic based on trust, respect, and solidarity.
