Samenvatting

A.C. Grayling answers the most important question - How do we live a good life? One of the most fundamental questions in our life is to find out what we value - what principles we want to live by and which codes we will use to guide our behaviour. Most of us want to live a good life. But what, in today's secular society, does 'good' actually mean? To classical Greeks, the acquisition of knowledge, the enjoyment of the senses, creativity and beauty were all aspects of life to strive for. Then came the volcanic declarations of St Paul and his fundamentalist ideas on sin and human nature. In WHAT IS GOOD?, A.C. Grayling examines these and other proposals on how to live a good life, from the 'heroic' ideals of the Greek poets to Kant's theories on freedom and the UN Declaration on Human Rights.

Recensie(s)

A plain man's guide to ethics, from Homer's warriors to Nietzsche's superhero via Plato and Renaissance Man, clearly and elegantly written. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH This book reminds us that often the greatest disagreements are between priorities rather than principles. INDEPENDENT Intelligent introduction... rewards your endeavours. -- Martin Tierney THE HERALD The book is beautifully written and highly engaging and it contains no footnotes. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT This popular yet nonetheless highly accomplished philosopher examines the different ways in which to live a good life, as proposed from classical antiquity to the present day. IRISH EXAMINER
