Description

On Suffering is a non-technical, philosophical-literary essay on what it means to be human and is addressed to all those, be they professional phi-losophers or simply existing individuals concerned with the meaning of life, who have an abiding interest in the central questions of philosophy-with basic issues having to do with the human condition and the nature of con-sciousness, as well as with the relation between mind and body, self and world. It is concerned throughout to elucidate the meaning of human hap-piness and the "good life." The book makes abundant use of the best of ancient wisdom and seeks to draw out the numerous and far-reaching im-plications of a philosophical understanding of things-concerning, above all, human freedom and responsibility-for everyday living, as well as for the practice of medicine and psychological counseling and therapy.
