Résumé : What I have particularly liked in your book, is how you show that a pure “rational” ethics is, if not a failure, at least something that is highly frustrating. With only cold rational principles to explain and describe morality, there is something missing, and what is missing is perhaps the most important part of ethics – the warmest part of it, the experience of feeling that here there is a victim, someone who suffers in his or her flesh. So you express the need for a more sensitive ethics, which would put an end to this frustration that we have in front of pure rational principles. And you do that very cleverly and very movingly too – so that we feel it, really.
