There are moral truths. There are truths about what matters in this world, and therefore also truths about how we should act in it. And we need to realize these truths, as such a realization itself will ignite a fundamental change for the better, both in our thinking, conduct and culture altogether. A fundamental change toward higher moral ground. Or so I argue in my latest book, Moral Truths: The Foundation of Ethics.
As the subtitle suggests, this book is my attempt at putting the foundations of ethics on the table, and, as the main title suggests, I maintain that these foundations are a matter of fact. My thesis is that we can derive 'ought' from 'is', from facts alone, and that we should become completely animated by these facts and thereby become what we so urgently need to become: an ethical species first and foremost.
