The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy
Cambridge University Press, 15 בינו׳ 2001 - 544 עמודים
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.
