In Instilling Values in Transcending Generations, Tieman Dippel creates a new paradigm in his focus on the power of a culture of morality and individual responsibility to impact the more competitive powers of economics and partisan politics. Rather than a book on morality, it is a book on the power of morality and how to shape society. It teaches readers to value individual responsibility and character rather than adopt a concept of victimization. In doing so it explains the necessity of changing the current drift that American culture has taken toward materialistic relativism. It is a book about the power of morality and the necessity of having a common core of ideas. It is focused on teaching readers how to more effectively fight in a world dominated by the powers of convenience, corruption, and terrorism.
In his Preface, the author discusses the origin of conscience, a subject explored by philosophers, scientists, and theologists. Most agree Internal Moral or Natural Law appears inherent in Man, both in Western and Eastern cultures. Dippel's challenge is how to develop it in the world of business in order to facilitate practices for the common good of all. This book is not written for a broad audience, but for three specific groups. The first audience includes young leaders who require advice in forming non-profit co-operative organisations. Already established interested participants in the non-profit sector who wish for a vision of the desired future comprises the second group. Since any vision must be international, the last group includes Asian cultural and economic leaders. This is a logically formatted book consisting of six major parts. The author begins with Service and Responsibility, and then moves on to Perspective, Influence of History, Ethics, Case Studies, and Strategies. Sub headings clearly explain each of the six major topics, and all focus on the imperative of leadership. It is interesting to note this book was published at an appropriate time. The heroism exhibited on September eleventh, and the subsequent days affirmed the nation's intrinsic good. People acted with conscience, not for convenience. Almost immediately thereafter, however, corporate CEO corruption revealed flaws in our nation's character. In spite of the latter, Dippel remains undeterred in his optimism and belief that individuals with high moral values not only can, but also should make a difference in our world.
