Summary, etc.:
Sommers argues that our collective rejection of honor has come at a great cost. Relying solely on the moral values of Enlightenment liberalism has made our society more tolerant but also turned it into the home of the cowardly, the shameless, the selfish, and the alienated. Properly channeled and contained, honor encourages virtues like courage, integrity, loyalty, self-respect, and a sense of living for something larger than ourselves.
Subject: Honor.
