Song of the earth : lectures on ethics

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review


The world has seen a huge eclipse of the human heart: we have the knowledge, we have the technology, and we have created a shallow and loveless life. Yes, our material well-being has been enhanced. We have been freed from magic and we are more ready to guide our own lives. But something seems missing: perhaps the significance or the meaning of life – something that would include a promise of a brighter future. Ethical thinking has shrunk to a topic for weekly magazines, sitcoms, and clerical opinions. But this eclipse of the heart can be defeated! The author of the book you hold in your hands provides a target, a future, and an ethically well-proportioned life. He makes you think and believe in your thinking. All you need is courage, devotion, and love – all quite worldly and true to life.
