The honor code: how moral revolutions happen - The Honor Code | Kwame Anthony Appiah


In Honor Code , Appiah focuses on a couple central questions: "How does moral progress happen?" and "How are societies brought to repudiate immoral customs they have long accepted?" He argues that social reform has not occurred due to legislation from above but has been driven by honor. Appiah looks at various moral revolutions, such as the struggles against footbinding in China and the revolt against Atlantic slavery, in order to get to the root of how honor is involved in the inhumanities man has committed against man.
