An inspiring and jargon-free look at how morals guide and inform our lives
Moral philosopher Susan Neiman makes the tools of her trade relevant to real life in Moral Clarity, steering us clear of political dogma to offer instead a framework for forming clear opinions and taking responsible action on today's urgent political and social questions. Neiman reaches back to the classic virtues-happiness, reason, reverence, and hope-that were held high by every Enlightenment thinker and draws on literature, evolutionary theory, and contemporary research to show that the pursuit of moral clarity is open to all who are committed to these ideals, believers and nonbelievers alike.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR MORAL CLARITY

"With passion, wit, and high intelligence, Susan Neiman invites us to be moral grown-ups, which means to take on the question 'what ought to be done?' and actually to come up with an answer. Morally and politically compelling-and a delight to read." -Michael Walzer, author of Spheres of Justice and Just and Unjust Wars

"Susan Neiman's profound wisdom, courage, and vision give us a public conception of goodness and a reinvigorated progressive vision that will resonate with the religious while remaining thoroughly secular and democratic. She is a beacon of light and hope in our morally debased times." -Cornel West, author of Democracy Matters and Race Matters



"Neiman's particular skill lies in expressing sensitivity, intelligence and moral seriousness without any hint of oversimplification, dogmatism or misplaced piety. She clearly and unflinchingly sees life as it is, but also sees how it might be, and could be, if we recaptured some of the hopes and ideals that currently escape us."
