The Ethics of Authenticity

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Aug 6, 2018 - Philosophy - 160 pages
Everywhere we hear of decline, of a world that was better before the influence of modernity. While some lament Western culture’s slide into relativism and nihilism and others celebrate the trend as a liberating sort of progress, Taylor calls on us to face the moral and political crises of our time, and to make the most of modernity's challenges.
