Description
A moral philosopher committed to making the tools of her trade relevant to real life, Susan Neiman shows how resurrecting a moral vocabulary—good and evil, heroism and nobility—can steer us clear of the dogmas of the right and the helpless pragmatism of the left. In search of a framework for forming clear opinions and taking responsible action on today's urgent political and social questions, Neiman reaches back to the 18th century, retrieving a set of virtues—happiness, reason, reverence, and hope—that were highly regarded by Enlightenment thinkers.

"Neiman's particular skill lies in expressing sensitivity, intelligence and moral seriousness without any hint of oversimplification, dogmatism or misplaced piety. She clearly and unflinchingly sees life as it is, but also sees how it might be, and could be, if we recaptured some of the hopes and ideals that currently escape us."—NYTimes
