This book explores the golden rule, an ethical formulation which occurs in some form in most of the world's religions, and which reached its most perfect formulation in the words of Jesus, ""Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."" Included are many of the different ways in which the rule is expressed by both religious and secular thinkers. This book also features succinct summaries of arguments for and against the golden rule as a guide to behavior. The Golden Rule is unique in its form. It is only two inches tall and eight inches in length - similar to a ruler - and is printed in golden ink so that it is both a book on the golden rule, and a golden rule itself. Unusually for Laughing Elephant this title is not illustrated; rather the words stand powerfully alone.
