The Meaning Of Good: A Dialogue

Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson

""The Meaning of Good: A Dialogue"" is a philosophical book written by Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson, originally published in 1911. The book is presented in the form of a dialogue between two characters, Socrates and Phaedo, as they discuss the nature and meaning of goodness. The dialogue covers a wide range of topics, including the relationship between morality and religion, the role of reason and intuition in ethical decision-making, and the concept of the ""good life."" Throughout the book, Dickinson challenges traditional views on morality and offers his own unique perspective on the meaning of good. This book is considered a classic in the field of ethics and is recommended for anyone interested in exploring the complexities of moral philosophy.The View That Knowledge Consists In The Perception Of Necessary Connections, Viewed From The Standpoint Of Good, This Seems To Be Open To The Same Objection. But Further, It Is Argued That The Perpetual Contemplation Of Necessary Relations Among Ideas Does Not Satisfy Our Conception Of The Good; But That We Require An Element Analogous Somehow To That Of Sense, Though Not, Like Sense, Unintelligible And Obscure.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
