About this product
- DescriptionDo good and evil exist? Absolutely. In this bracing book, the eminent Dutch philosopher Andreas Kinneging turns fashionable thinking on its head, revealing how good and evil are objective, universal, and unchanging and how they must be rediscovered in our age. In mapping the geography of good and evil, Kinneging reclaims, and reintroduces us to, the great tradition of ancient and Christian thought. Traditional wisdom enables us to address the eternal questions of good and evil that confront us in both public and private life. Though it is common to accept uncritically the blessings of modernity and its intellectual sources, the Enlightenment and Romanticism, Kinneging shows that traditional thinking is richer and more realistic. Indeed, we see how, in more than a few respects, the Enlightenment and Romanticism brought t progress but deterioration. Kinneging skillfully reformulates and defends the insights of traditional thinking for today s readers, demonstrating how an objective morality is to be understood and how we can kw what morality demands of us. At a time when the traditional virtues have practically disappeared from our language (that is, all but one tolerance ), he lays out the foundations of virtue and vice. Ultimately, Kinneging reveals the lasting significance of these seemingly archaic tions to our own lives, to our families, to our culture, and to civilization. This profound, award-winning work establishes Andreas Kinneging as one of our wisest moral philosophers. Shows with utmost clarity the virtue of intellectual courage . . . A brilliant model for sallies against our dark age. The Intercollegiate Review [Kinneging is] leader of a conservative intellectual revival in the Netherlands. New York Times Magazine
