In “How to Be Perfect”, Michael Schur provides the perfect answer to every moral question. He covers everything from morality in politics, business, and personal relationships to more controversial topics like abortion, euthanasia, and animal rights. With clear explanations and well-argued arguments, Schur makes it easy for readers to develop their own ethical framework based on his six key principles: respect for autonomy, beneficence (doing good), nonmaleficence (avoiding harm), justice (distributive fairness), honesty (telling the truth), and purity (keeping one’s impulses under control).
