"Yi-Fu Tuan is one of the most remarkable and creative forces in the intellectual life of our time." - Simon Schama, Columbia University, author of Rough Crossings
UW professor emeritus Yi-Fu Tuan contends in his book Human Goodness that genuinely good people and their actions are far from boring, naive, and trite; they are complex, varied, and enormously exciting. In a refreshing antidote to skeptical times, Tuan explores our capacity for moral reasoning and asks a seemingly simple question: What does it mean to be good? His answer is as surprising as it is profound.
"This remarkable book delights in the varieties and contradictions in goodness." - Publishers Weekly
