9780023961205: Good Life: Alternatives in Ethics

The Good Life contains an exposition and critique of the various ideals in living that have been advocated by major philosophers and schools of thought. In addition, the ethical problems of egoism, determinism, and relativism are explained and evaluated in both their classic Greek form and in the deconstruction of post-modernism.

Review:

"People today have an unprecedented degree of freedom in deciding how they want to live, but this freedom of choice comes at a time of widespread uncertainty as to which way of life is best...In our present historical situation, the only justifiable course open to us is to consider the various life alternatives that exist, in an independent and critical way, and thereby arrive at some viable purpose for our own lives. This book has been written to help the reader in this search - not to provide ready answers but to highlight possible directions...Readers should 'mix their blood' with the conceptions of the good life that are presented, and sincerely attempt to decide which is most defensible and fulfilling" - From the Preface.
