ECONOMICS AND LITERATURE 2 Literature Every person has his or her unique point of view in every given situation in real world or in the world of fiction. Cosgrove (2003) defines ethics as the moral fitness of a decision and course of action. Moral engagement as used in literature implies engagement with moral values of literature. Inhabiting one of these different perspectives as reader by putting yourself in the character’s position has teachings on one’s own ethical engagement with world or makes one understand other ethical positions better. By putting yourself into a character or a person, a reader is able to learn the various challenges that a person faces in given situation and the answer to those challenges. The reader is also able to understand the importance of the decisions made to overcome such situations. The reader thereafter is able apply these in their ethical engagement in the real world situation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
