Thought of the Week

Western moral philosophy has failed us. Over the centuries the western world has chosen which philosophical roads to follow. If you think this is not an important issue for you then think again. David Brooke put it most eloquently when he said that there are three major failures in Western philosophical thought. The West chose Jeremy Bentham instead of Victor Frankl. It chose René Descartes instead of St Augustine and it chose Thomas Hobbes instead of Martin Buber. In other words we have chosen to centre our thoughts around pleasure and pain whereas they should be organised around meaning in life. We have chosen to be cognitive creatures in preference to being emotional and longing creatures and we have chosen to think of ourselves as individuals rather than as encounter with the other. So it boils down to this: we are selfish, isolated, materialistic and hedonistic creatures – now isn’t that what the Bible tells us what we should not be.
