Finding Our Sea-Legs: Ethics, Experience and the Ocean of Stories

When it comes to ethics it seems that we are all at sea Since the beginning the philosophers have always dreamed of finally reaching solid ground but their proofs and demonstrations and laws have failed to bring us into harbour Incapable of defining virtue we manage to tell tales about it not quite sure what justice is we still spin yarns about the just and the unjust Casting the reader adrift onto the sea of stories attentive to the changes in the winds and the tides through both philosophy and storytelling this book explores ethics not as a means of finding our way back home to a safe harbour but instead as a way of acclimatising ourselves to life on the seas of uncertainty


Sixty-Four Chance Pieces: A Book of Changes

The Chinese i I Ching i or i Book of Changes i is one of the oldest and strangest of all books a masterpiece of world literature a divination manual and a magnet for the deranged and the obsessive In i Sixty Four Chance Pieces i novelist and philosopher Will Buckingham puts the i I Ching i to work using it to weave together stories of chance and change each flowing from one of the i I Ching i s hexagrams Moving between myth fable and travel writing the collection offers an attempt to make sense of the maddening changeable book that is the i I Ching i with tales of inventors and fox spirits ancient poets and nonexistent rulers kleptomaniac pensioners and infernal bureaucrats Like the i I Ching i itself this new i Book of Changes i is a puzzle a conundrum and a journey of many transformations where nothing is quite what it seems
