Dwight GarnerMr. Appiah is out to reclaim the word honor, in philosophical terms, at least, and to attach it to another contested word: revolution. He's interested in how our best instincts can be churning engines for broad and progressive social change. To this territory he is a calm and learned guide. If The Honor Code occasionally has the whiff of the senior seminar about it…the author also seeks and often achieves a Malcolm Gladwell-like balance between argument and storytelling. He stirs in spoonfuls of narrative honey to help his medicinal tea go down.
