Why do we have so much difficulty changing our lifestyles when no one can deny that our development model has a destructive impact on an ecological and social level, not to mention the intensity of violence inflicted on animals? For Corinne Pelluchon, overcoming this challenge involves closing the gap between theory and practice through the development of virtue ethics. Instead of focusing on the principles or consequences of our actions, the author is interested in our specific motivations; by the representations and affects that push us to act. What moral traits can help us enjoy doing good, rather than being constantly torn between happiness and duty? The ethics of consideration draws from ancient morals, but rejects their essentialism and is based on humility and vulnerability. The author defines consideration as transdescendence: a deepening movement that allows the subject to experience the link that unites him or her to other living beings and transforms his or her awareness of his or her belonging to the common world into lived knowledge and commitment. Pelluchon, far from leaving the reader at the mercy of a new ethics, describes in this book the stages by which the ethics of consideration can become a global attitude.
