This chapter summarizes the book's main themes. It concludes that if one's heart has been moved by the arguments and illustrations of this book, one must now switch over to action. One has to live for a while the new way of life outlined here. One must attempt to pursue the fundamental values in exalted ways, while avoiding corrosive actions. Only then will one have a sufficient basis in experience for reflection. Without actions, theoretical reflection on practical morality produces only virtual results.

Keywords:   moral life, moral practices, reflection, morality, fundamental values
