A Guide for Grown-up IdealistsBook - 2008
An inspiring and jargon-free look at how morals guide and inform our lives Moral philosopher Susan Neiman makes the tools of her trade relevant to real life in Moral Clarity , steering us clear of political dogma to offer instead a framework for forming clear opinions and taking responsible action on today's urgent political and social questions. Neiman reaches back to the classic virtues--happiness, reason, reverence, and hope--that were held high by every Enlightenment thinker and draws on literature, evolutionary theory, and contemporary research to show that the pursuit of moral clarity is open to all who are committed to these ideals, believers and nonbelievers alike.
