Description

Much of the history of philosophy is the history of ethics. From Plato to Sartre, the great philosophers have returned to the central ethical question of how, particularly if we are not religious, we are to live good lives; how is it appropriate and virtuous for us to behave, both to ourselves and others? How are we to act when loyalty demands of us one response, honesty another? A phenomenal bestseller in France and now translated into twenty-four languages, A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues addresses these questions and is at once a return to the mainstream of much of the Western philosophical tradition and an utterly original exploration of the timeless human virtues.

Author Biography

In a country that reveres philosophers, Comte-Sponville is latest in a line of French star philosophers that runs from Sartre, through Derrida, Finkielkraut and Bernard-Henri Levy. Unlike the last three, his accessibility and refusal to fly in the face of common sense has made him famous across Europe.
