* The Golden Rule, aka “the ethic of reciprocity” traces its legal roots to the Laws of Eshnunna (ca. 4100 - 2100 BC), Code of Ur-Nammu, king of Ur (ca. 2112 - 2095 BC), Hammurabi’s Code of Laws (ca 2250 - 1780 B.C.), codex of Lipit-Ishtar of Isin (ca. 1870 BCE - 1860 BC), Hittite laws (ca. 2000 - 1200 BC), Assyrian laws (ca. 1800 - 600 BC), and Mosaic Law (ca. 1446 B.C); its philosophical roots trace to ancient Babylon, Egypt, Persia, India, Greece, Judea, China; and its religious roots to the Decalogue, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism, among other creeds. The most common iteration of the rule is: “Treat others as you wish to be treated.”
