A Decent PDF/EPUB ² for you In a world full of suffering and deprivation it’s easy to despair—and it’s also easy to judge ourselves for not doing Even if we gave away everything we own and devoted ourselves to good works it wouldn’t solve all the world’s problems It would make them better though So is that what we have to do Is anything less a moral failure Can we lead a fundamentally decent life without taking such drastic steps Todd May has answers He’s not the sort of philosopher who tells us we have to be model citizens who display perfect ethics in every decision we make He’s realistic he understands that living up to ideals is a constant struggle In A Decent Life May leads readers through the traditional philosophical bases of a number of arguments about what ethics asks of us then he develops a reasonable and achievable way of thinking about them one that shows us how we can use philosophical insights to participate in the complicated world around us He explores how we should approach the many relationships in our lives—with friends family animals people in need—through the use of a forgiving if no less fundamentally serious moral compass With humor insight and a lively and accessible style May opens a discussion about how we can realistically lead the good life that we aspire to A philosophy of goodness that leaves it all but unattainable is ultimately self defeating Instead Todd May stands at the forefront of a new wave of philosophy that sensibly reframes our morals and redefines what it means to live A Decent Life.
