Yi-Fu Tuan is one of The University of Wisconsin- Madison¿s most singular scholars and thinkers, a philosopher who is able to seize big, metaphysical issues and consider them in uniquely accessible ways. This most recent book is evidence of his talent and is both as simple, and as epic, as it sounds. A refreshing antidote to skepitcal times, Human Goodness offers a rousing series of biographies--on figures ranging from Confucius and Socrates to Mozart and Simon Weil--that suggest there are, in fact, human lives which can inspire us, and which confirm the value of goodness, and ethical courage. If the result borders on a collective hagiography Tuan has the courage to admit that and reaffirm a form that has lost its own value, in a cynical age. Both reviewers applaud his efforts and the results. William Howarth says Tuan¿s ¿taxonomy of goodness is a godsend to any instructor trying to excite..college students about ethical issues,¿ and suggests the book will have a wider, trade audience as well. Reviewer Steven Grosby goes even further, arguing that the ¿ (UW) Press has an opportunity to reach a considerably wider audience than what one usually expects from a university press.¿
