From the Publisher
_Loving Life_ begins by exposing the baseless nature of the various moralities that call for human sacrifice and lead to human suffering; it then shows how a true morality is derived logically from observable facts and what such a morality implies--personally, socially, and politically. With clarity and elegance, Biddle demonstrates the principles, values, and virtues that are essential to human life and happiness; and he defines and defends the social and political conditions that are required for people to live together as civilized beings. His lucid discussion ranges from the fundamental cause of the massacre at Columbine High School to why Islamic terrorists are committed altruists; from what is wrong with subjectivism to why religion is a form of subjectivism; from the objective foundation of morality to the universal requirements of personal happiness; from the essence of moral virtue to why laissez-faire capitalism is the only moral social system. This book is as timely as it is profound.
