dc.description.abstract When it comes to ethics, it seems that we are all at sea. Since the beginning, the philosophers have always dreamed of finally reaching solid ground, but their proofs and demonstrations and laws have failed to bring us into harbour. Incapable of defining virtue, we manage to tell tales about it; not quite sure what justice is, we still spin yarns about the just and the unjust. Casting the reader adrift onto the sea of stories, attentive to the changes in the winds and the tides, through both philosophy and storytelling, this book explores ethics not as a means of finding our way back home to a safe harbour, but instead as a way of acclimatising ourselves to life on the seas of uncertainty. en
