This is the 5th volume of blogs, dedicated to the Search for Secular Ethics, as inspired by Dalai Lama. My search does not aspire to infallibility.

Feel free to comment on any of my 93 blogs.

El siglo XIX fue una de las épocas en la que más cambios sociales y tecnológicos ocurrieron, y nuevas formas de pensamiento surgieron debido a estos avances vertiginosos. Uno de los pilares del pensamiento actual nace de una profunda reflexión acerca de qué hacer cuando el ciudadano no está de acuerdo con algunas o todas las acciones del gobierno: para Thoreau es claro, la desobediencia civil.

Așa cum este definită eugenia, este foarte dificil de făcut o diferențiere clară între știință (medicină, ingineria genetică) și eugenie. Și de stabilit o linie peste care ingineria genetică nu ar trebui să treacă, conform unor norme morale, juridice și religioase.
Diary of Atonement: The case for good and evil
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 22,600. Language: English. Published: January 25, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
This is a work on identity that challenges the mind to think for itself. To say of an identity that “it is itself” says not that an identity is a oneness (so tradition) but that it is two-faced–a paradox. I invite you to find the book provocative, inviting your criticism, as a mind-challenging exercise in thinking for yourself. And why not?

The world cries out for an imaginative but realistic Biblical guide to the life foreshadowed in Christ's model prayer.

The greed creed is driving humanity towards a very dangerous future. We need to stop and take a long hard look at what is happening and what we are being driven towards. Two and a half thousand years ago the great philosophers showed us a way to live based on love, respect and empathy. Maybe it’s time for humans to evolve and accept those principles as our best option for survival.

A Legacy Under Attack. The Sartrean legacy in moral philosophy is under siege. While Jean-Paul Sartre is regarded as a well-accomplished writer in philosophy, novel, playwright, and biography, just to name a few, many are convinced that ethics was not his strongest suit.

What follows if we reject belief in any kind of non-physical soul and instead fully embrace what we know about the world? The main implication, this book argues, is a naturalization of personal identity and ethics. A radically different way of thinking about ourself. “Magnus Vinding's best book to date. Highly recommended.” — David Pearce, author of 'The Hedonistic Imperative'.

Friedrich Nietzsche es quizá el filósofo mas influyente del siglo XIX, crítico mordaz de las religiones, así como de la cultura y la filosofía occidental, afirmando que la sociedad está inmersa en un nihilismo del que debe recuperarse si quiere sobrevivir. Estas son dos controversiales obras escritas hacia el final de su vida, que demoraron muchos años en ser editadas por sus duras críticas.

Sartrean Ethics
Price: $6.99 USD. Words: 40,590. Language: English. Published: December 23, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
While Jean-Paul Sartre is regarded as a well-accomplished philosopher in other fields, his views about ethics are often rebuked vociferously. I endeavor, passionately of course, to dissect the congruity of Sartre's writings on ethics. I argue that it is quintessential to emphasize the intellectual relevance of this great thinker in the ethical discipline.
