Associate Professor of
Philosophy Laura Rediehs was named
a co-winner in the Carnegie Council
for Ethics
in International Affairs’
2012
international essay competition,
Ethics for a Connected World.” The
essay question was, “In your opinion,
what is the greatest ethical challenge or
dilemma facing the planet?” Rediehs
wrote, “We have let economics replace
ethics as a guide to life. Ethics is about
the well-being of people, and so it is
ethics that should be the end while
money is merely one kind of means.” To
