C
A few years ago an editor working on an article of mine dis-couraged me from referring to C. P. Snow’s essay “The TwoCultures,” which cautioned against the growing intellectualgap between the humanities and sciences. My editor felt it hadbecome overused, a cliché. But if it was a cliché, it had becomeone for good reasons. It resonated throughout the world of ideas and continues to do so today. At Princeton UniversityPress we try to integrate the two cultures as much as possible,and this has never been more apparent than in this catalog.Our eorts to bridge the cultures begin with the widely antici-pated publication of

When confonted with an ethical dilemma, most of us like tothink we would stand u fo ou inciles. But we ae not asethical as we think we ae. n
Blind Spots
, leading businessethicists Max Bazeman and Ann enbunsel examine theways we oveestimate ou ability to do what is ight and howwe act unethically without meaning to. Fom the collase of non and coution in the tobacco industy, to sales of thedefective Fod pinto and the downfall of Benad Mado, theauthos investigate the natue of ethical failues in the busi-ness wold and beyond, and illustate how we can becomemoe ethical, bidging the ga between who we ae and whowe want to be.xlaining why taditional aoaches to ethics don’twok, the book consides how blind sots like ethical fading—the emoval of ethics fom the decision-making ocess—haveled to tagedies and scandals such as the hallenge saceshuttle disaste, steoid use in Majo League Baseball, thecash in the nancial makets, and the enegy cisis. he au-thos demonstate how ethical standads shift, how we neglectto notice and act on the unethical behavio of othes, and howcomliance initiatives can actually omote unethical behav-io. istinguishing ou “should self” (the eson who knowswhat is coect) fom ou “want self”( the eson who ends umaking decisions), the authos oint out ethical sinkholes thatceate questionable actions.uggesting innovative individual and gou tactics foimoving human judgment,
