The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy
Author
Martha C. Nussbaum
ISBN
9780521794725
This book is a study of ancient views about "moral luck." It examines the fundamental ethical problem that many of the valued constituents of a well-lived life are vulnerable to factors outside a person's control, and asks how this affects our appraisal of persons and their lives. The Greeks made a profound contribution to these questions, yet neither the problems nor the Greek views of them have received the attention they deserve. This updated edition contains a new preface.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Martha C.
