What People are Saying About This
As part of his on-going project of becoming reconciled to the human condition, Norman Care asks how we are to respond to the apparent fact that people are, from time to time, simply indifferent to what they would even admit were serious moral issues. In taking up related issues, he considers the thorny problem of how to motivate concern for very distant future generations, which makes an important contribution to enviornmental ethics. One of the refreshing things about Norman Care's work is that he is impossible to classify, he appears to have no axes to grind, and he defines issues for himself in a novel way.
The best feature of the book is its organizing vision—one of deep humanistic sensitivity.
