Here is a rare light on the most troubling-and least understood-aspect of our existence. In Why Can't We Be Good?, the widely respected philosopher Jacob Needleman identifies the crisis that therapists and social philosophers fail to see: As individuals, we know what is good-yet we remain mysteriously helpless to live by the ethical, moral, and religious ideas that are bequeathed to us, and that are intended to guide us in living authentic lives.
