What is Good; The Search For The Best Way To Live

By A. C. Grayling, England, Butler & Tanner Ltd, 2003. 219 pp. + 9 page bibliograhy + Index.

 

An inspiring overview of the development Humanism and of its continual struggle with mostly Christian religious thinking throughout the history of Western European civilization.  An honest and serious book. Grayling does not just describe and clarify, but tackles many big questions of life and death and of course comes up with some valuable thinking on what matters in human life and how non-mystical thinking is of such great importance and always has been.
