Ideas Unite, Issues Divide collects four years’ worth of editorials Richard Kyte has written for the La Crosse Tribune on the topic of the ethical life. These essays examine contemporary and perennial moral conflicts in light of their underlying philosophical ideas. They aspire to contribute to everyday conversation about right and wrong, about virtue and misconduct, not by taking sides
but by arguing that such conversation itself is the essence of the good, well-lived life. Ranging from education to ecology, bullying to political speech, drones to boat-building, these essays persuade
us that chief among the urgent issues of our day is the thoughtful examination of our own lives.
The greatest good is to discuss virtue every day.
—Socrates
