Ethics for the New Millennium (Wheeler Hardcover)

Ethics for the New Millennium (Wheeler Hardcover) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Only during times when we have so little faith in one another, so little confidence in the willingness of others to do what is right, can a strong voice emerge to dispel disillusionment. It takes a person of great courage, such as the Dalai Lama, to face these times and give us hope.

There is an argument to be made for basic human goodness. The number of people who spend their lives being violent or dishonest is tiny compared with the number of people — the vast majority we don't hear about — who would wish others only well.

The Dalai Lama presents an ethical system that not only is based on common sense and reason, as opposed to religious dogma or punitive legislation, but has as its goal ultimate happiness for every individual. He demonstrates that we human beings are better than we think we are, and that a society and a life that cultivate love and compassion are completely within our reach.
