Reissued in the fantastic new series look What is Good was number one in the Observer bestselling titles for philosophy and has sold 24,000 copies in paperback 'Grayling nicely straddles the artificial divide between man of letters and philosopher, and here he takes the general reader on a civilised and lucid journey from the ethics of the pagan world through the Christian centuries, past the enlightenment and its utilitarian descendants, through the anxiety-ridden 20th century, and into the present' Simon Blackburn, Sunday Times 'Grayling effectively demystifies a subject that is all too often discussed as though its secrets are accessible only to long-bearded gurus. He writes like a dream and with impressive but not overbearing erudition' Julian Baggini, TES

Reviews

"A plain man's guide to ethics, from Homer's warriors to Nietzsche's superhero via Plato and Renaissance Man, clearly and elegantly written." SUNDAY TELEGRAPH "This book reminds us that often the greatest disagreements are between priorities rather than principles." INDEPENDENT "Intelligent introduction... rewards your endeavours." -- Martin Tierney THE HERALD "The book is beautifully written and highly engaging and it contains no footnotes." TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT "This popular yet nonetheless highly accomplished philosopher examines the different ways in which to live a good life, as proposed from classical antiquity to the present day."
