9780062505323: A Question of Values: Six Ways We Make the Personal Choices That Shape Our Lives

The author illuminates how contemporary Americans come to believe what we believe. Comparing the varying value systems in our pluralistic society--authority, logic, experience, emotion, intuition, and science--he brings clarity and a common vocabulary to the diversity that is a source of both strength and dissension.

From Library Journal:

Proposing a framework for defining and evaluating personal value systems based on various perceptions of truth, Lewis isolates six characteristic systems grounded in authority, deductive logic, science, sense experience, intuition, and emotion. Rather than analyzing how or why individuals favor one particular style, Lewis attempts to examine these systems as they occur in observations of individuals and society. He is careful to point out that no single category necessarily applies to each individual: most have "cross-fertilized" a number of styles. A good primer on personal ethics and values that includes classroom notes for further discussion.
