Ships from and sold by books-fyi. is among the best works of contemporary moral philosophy in this or any year in recent memory. Every reader will find. numerous insights and interesting arguments. -Stephen Nathanson, Philosophy and Literature. John Kekes is Professor of Philosophy and Public Policy at the State University of New York, Albany. He is the author of many books, including Moral Tradition and Individuality (Princeton).

Arguing that the prevalence of evil presents a fundamental problem for our secular sensibility, John Kekes develops a conception of character-morality as a response. He shows that the main sources of evil are habitual, unchosen actions produced by our character defects and that we can increase our control over the evil we cause by cultivating a reflective temper.

John Keats' career as a poet is on the very brink of taking off when he meets the aristocratic, irritating and very distracting Percy Shelley. Run, John, said Shelley, taking his arm and yanking him down the stairs, two at a time. They pelted past the crowd at the bottom of the stairs and the footmen at the door and burst out onto the street, gasping and laughing.

  • This is my third review of a John Kekes book. The first was, "The Roots Of Evil" and " Facing Evil" is similar but yet, not really. I found this book more challenging than his other books, including, "The Examined Life", which I recently reviewed. With regard to living a good life, Kekes writes, " It requires both curbing evil, which makes good lives possible, and the pursuit of goods, which gives good lives their content". The key term is, for Kekes, the term "character-morality". Herein lies the strategy. Holding so called "evil doers" responsible is based on the harm they cause. The idea of human agency is emphasized as pertaining to the consequences of harm perpetrated and not on whether the act was consciously chosen. If you would like to elevate your discriminatory powers concerning right and wrong and if the terms "evil, character, morality, and responsibility", are appealing to you, read this book. You may find it helpful especially in a crisis where personal biases are most likely manifested. "Facing Evil" is like having a friend watch your back as you move through the pain.

  • I love my new book, excellent condition, almost new. Exactly as they said.

  • Note that Mr. Mattioli has posted his review to a number of books. It has no bearing on the books under review.
