An inspiring and wonderful, yet analytical work on ethics.

David Norton's book is an long overdue corrective on years of abuse heaped upon ethical individualism in text books on ethics. Norton develops the case for an individualism that sees human nature along lines of such classical thinkers as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, instead of Thomas Hobbes (who is usually named as the founder of modern individualism). The good human life is, by Norton's account, not manifest is constant, relentless desire- satisfaction, so an ethical individualist does not amount to a cruel, self-indulgent person but someone who realizes in himself the full measure of potentiality as a human being, including a robust sociality. This necessarily leads to a virtuous life, especially a life of moral integrity. Norton has given us a wonderful alternative to the ethics of altruism or self-denial without the silly alternative of the asocial bully standing in for individualism. This book should be a must read for anyone really interested in moral philosophy. Tibor R. Machan
