The pioneering moral philosopher Annette Baier presents a series of new and recent essays in ethics, broadly conceived to include both engagements with other philosophers and personal meditations on life. Baier's unique voice and insight illuminate a wide range of topics. In the public sphere, she enquires into patriotism, what we owe future people, and what toleration we should have for killing. In the private sphere, she discusses honesty, self-knowledge, hope, sympathy, and self-trust, and offers personal reflections on faces, friendship, and alienating affection.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...this book is full of vitality, and the informality of the writing makes for some quite enjoyable reading. * Michael Slote, The Philosophical Quarterly *
The essays are very well written, often quietly funny, exceptionally wide-ranging, and full of the most unexpected and illuminating ideas, connections, and questions. They are engaging, interesting, often impassioned and enjoyable. Both their style and content reflect a clear literary interest, and that is partly why they make such good reading. * John Kekes, Mind *
