Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Aristotle stressed that being happy can lead to moral goodness, while Immanuel Kant stressed duty and motivation - Bauer's treatise is all about motive, motive, motive. Bauer stresses again and again that what is truly important when we are trying to figure out if our or others deeds are good or bad, moral or immoral is not whether they make us or others happy, but the underlying motivation for the deeds. If you want to begin to think more clearly about morality then this book is an excellent starting point. However, be careful, this book seems simple and straightforward at first, but it is deeper than think, so be prepared to do a lot of thinking on your own.

This book is a jewel....small, but deep and multifaceted. Imagine being able to go back to school and have a professor steeped in philosophy walk you through the essence of ethics. This book takes you on such a journey and Fred Bauer does an amazing job of walking the reader through terrain we thought we knew and understood, only to surprise us every step of the way. I love this book and recommed it highly!

Format: Paperback
As a former student of Dr. Bauer, I read most of the content of this small but profound book. I can state with perfect candor that until one has read it, he has not yet begun to think clearly not only about "ethics" or "philosophy" but about why questions belonging to such "disciplines" are important. Everyone owes it to himself to read this book at least once.
