Description
Contrary to what we've been taught in our intellect-obsessed culture, it is emotion, rather than reason, that is the bedrock of our ethical life, argues Mark Matousek; without feelings, human beings cannot be empathic, moral, or good. But how do we make the judgment call between self-interest and caring for others? Which parts of morality are biological, and which are ethical? When should instinct be trusted and when does it lead us into trouble? What does being good really mean? In conversations with social scientists, spiritual leaders, ex-cons, altruists, and philosophers, Matousek examines morality from scientific, sociological, and anthropological standpoints.

"Mark Matousek guides us through a revolution in ethical science with deft, thought-provoking style. Ethical Wisdom is a riveting, fun, and insightful tour of life's meaning and purpose, essential reading for anyone drawn to the query, 'How ought we to live?'"—Daniel Goleman
