Fernando Savater, an agnostic philosopher with a talent for shedding light on complex questions, challenges the long moral tradition of the sins described in the Middle Ages. He offers a contemporary reinterpretation of the virtues needed to overcome «temptations»: the humility to recognize ourselves for who we truly are; the generosity to face relationships with others; patience; temperance and diligence. The opinions of a rabbi and a Catholic priest round out an incisive text that questions accepted ideas and clichés to show how modern society can confront big ethical questions without abandoning the achievements of enlightened reason.
