內容簡介

道德與自省落伍了嗎? 《Social Animal》作者大衞布魯克挑戰當今社會價值的提問

  結合心理學、社會學、宗教、精神意識等層次,在社會以自我追求財富、聲望來定義成功時,我們的生活是否應該回歸更深層的核心價值,如善良,勇敢,誠實,忠誠或該專注於什麼樣的關係?本書中以世界上的思想家與行動領導者在達成目標前,面臨自我內心的掙扎與自我限制的過程中,逐次建立起自我強大的內在性格為例,說明舊有時代,無論是來自宗教,或是社會規範的價值觀,如自律、約束、專注等,非但未過時,在社群自拍、自我主張等「我」意識高漲的今日,如何協助人們不致迷失在過於放大的自我中,保持清醒與自覺,品性由此建立。<博客來編譯>
 
  #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

  “I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it.”—David Brooks
 
  With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our “résumé virtues”—achieving wealth, fame, and status—and our “eulogy virtues,” those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.
 
  Looking to some of the world’s greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade.
 
  Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.
