This is a book in the Hau Masterclass series. Charles Taylor writes:  “These four remarkable lectures make us aware, in different ways, of the complexity and variety of what we call ethics. . . . They masterfully demonstrate, on one side, how our ethical action is embedded in everyday life, and on the other, how our moral standards can be the object of willed and conscious historical change. . . . a path-breaking book full of fascinating insights, new approaches, and suggestive lines of research.”
