A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues - The Uses of Philosophy in Everyday Life

By André Comte-Sponville

'A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues' explores a number of classic human virtues (politeness, generosity, tolerance etc.), with each being tackled in separate and concise chapter.

This book provides an accessible introduction to the history of Western ethics and human virtues.

The themes are related to our modern day lives and 'what we should do, who we should be, and how we should live'.

Although there are no sections specific for kindness, there are many relevant references.
