This book presents the initial roots of ethics and communication as human thinking. According to the authors, ethical behavior is indistinguishable from behavior when dealing with various situations, dilemmas and the evaluation of problems. Even knowledge, communication skills and co-habitation require ethics.
Effective human beings created teams and cooperation developed a minimal quantum of ethics which secured a denominator for human interaction. In the book, the reader may find many relevant examples illustrating the theory.
