Cronache dall'epigastrio


Per il titolo avevo pensato a "Memorie dal sottosuolo", ma pare che qualcuno l'abbia già usato. Ho ripiegato su "Cronache dall'epigastrio", anche perché non era mia intenzione discutere di inconscio, pensiero o anima. Il mio sottosuolo si trova nella pancia e il libro racconta appunto le sue cronache

Etica, La - Fundamentos y Problematicas Contemporaneas
Etica, La - Fundamentos y Problematicas ... Etica, La - Fundamentos y Problematicas Contemporaneas - Pierre Blackburn I own this book in French, which is one of my native languages, but that edition doesn't seem to be listed on Goodreads.

This is a college or high school textbook on ethical philosophy, produced in French speaking Canada. How it found its way to my bookshop in France I don't know, but I feel pretty lucky to have a copy. It was perfect for the age I was at (early 20s) very approachable and readable but still serious in its approach to the subject matter. It's really too bad it isn't more widely available and doesn't seem to have been translated into English.

In case anyone's interested to know what it covers:

Part 1: The Nature of Ethics
- Preliminary discussion of ethical concepts, history, connection with other disciplines.
- Moral relativism, arguments in favor of its existence
- Moral progress, discussion on what it means and whether it occurs
- Tools for ethical thinking, e.g. the golden mean and others

Part 2: The Basis of Moral Judgements
- Appeals to divine commandment and its critics
- Appeals to nature and its critics
- Appeals to the common good and its critics

Part 3: Social Ethics
- Ethics and economics
- Ethics and democracy
- Justice

Part 4: An anthology of texts dealing with ethical questions

Conclusion: Why should I act morally?

Ética para Um Jovem
Ética para Um Jovem - Fernando Savater I found it too basic. I understand that it is for young people but I was young at the time I read this book and it still bored me. It didn't add anything new.
So now I have a dilemma: or I read essays that can be very confusing at times, OR ... ... I don't read nothing related to philosophy. Because this... it's just not worth it.

Ética para Amador - Fernando Savater A pain in the ass to get through. Had to read for school.
