On Right in Wrong

Lanham, MD: Lexington (forthcoming)

Michael Picard
Douglas College
This is Michael Picard's translation of Gerd Achenbach’s Vom Richtigen im Falsche. This book by the pioneer of Philosophical Praxis deals with themes from the philosophy of life, such as impermanence, the contradictions in life, trust, happiness, solace and old age. It represents a profound engagement with today but no less with the long tradition of Western philosophy and culture, and offers livable insights in a rare style. The over-arching question is how a philosophically-inspired artisanal approach to life can prove itself equal to life. The book presents a cheerful wisdom that does not blink at reality, but cleaves to right in a wrong world.
