ETHICS AND SPIRITUALITY
ETHICS AND SPIRITUALITY
Description

About the Book :

Recent renewal of interest in the notions of goodness, character and virtue as central to ethical theory, is perhaps the most important development in moral philosophy. The virtue ethicists have, however, failed to answer convincingly questions concerning both the ratio and the ordinatio of virtues. Why are certain qualities of character virtues? How are the virtues grounded? What is a good life> And why should man aim at the good? For answer to such questions the author looks up to the Indian spiritual tradition. It has been argued that a secular quest of the ultimate truth - so characteristic of Indian spirituality - is atonce a movement towards the good of human life. And a sincere commitment to the 'quest naturally involves the moral agent to embrace the inclusive virtue of 'selflessness'.

This book will be immensely useful to all those interested in current concerns of post-modern ethics, as well as to those who wish to understand the essential character and the moral significance of the spiritual life.

About the Author:

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
