All types of differences such as race, religion, language, traditions, and gender can be introduced this way.
The book outlines the variety of ways people can be different from each other including colour, size, language, and family.
The Culture of Conduct is the book authored by Liana Bedinadze designed to respond to the lack of discussion on various concepts and theories of ethics in the public schools in Georgia.

The book aims at introducing discussion of moral issues in a systematic way and provides an educational experience.
