Ruth Chang

May 2014

Chang, a philosopher, challenges the way we look at and make hard decisions in our lives. She outlines a way to take a new perspective so that we can view these difficult decisions in a more pleasing light.

Far from being sources of agony and dread, hard choices are precious opportunities for us to celebrate what is special about the human condition, that the reasons that govern our choices as correct or incorrect sometimes run out, and it is here, in the space of hard choices, that we have the power to create reasons for ourselves to become the distinctive people that we are. And that’s why hard choices are not a curse but a godsend.
