This text brings Eastern and Western ethics together to address the perennial questions of philosophy - Who am I? What makes life worthwhile? What are my obligations? LIVING WELL stresses the interplay between identity and ethics and the continuity between virtues and duties. Original introductory essays by specialists set the theoretical stage for classic selections from both Eastern and Western philosophy.
