Values are the New Religion with Linda Woodhead.
‘Value statements’ have become ubiquitous, churned out by schools, hospitals, businesses and national governments. Some are enshrined in law.

But it is in understanding the tensions and clashes between values that we have the best opportunity for thinking constructively about our possible, probable and preferable futures.
