Explosive, as contemporary as tomorrow, this book will ofend some, excite many, and challenge all! Here is a manifesto of individual freedom and individual responsability, elaborated within an ethic of love, which extricates modern man from rigid, archaic rules and codes. Proclaiming that any moral system is too shallow and petty to provide answers, the author outlines a methodology for decision-making which presupposes individual responsability and declares that every man must decide for himself what is right, Dr. Fletcher takes up where Bishop Robinson left off in "Honest to God", in which the Bishop calls Dr. Fletcher's development of the new morality the "most consistent statement" of the situationist ethic. Rising above any creed, this renewed morality of loving concern is bases on agape, the love of which only God is capable, but which every man must endeavor to emulate. Jus as Jesus defted convention to make decisions on the basis of particularv people and particular circumstances, so much modern man.

Three approches.

Some Presuppositions.

Love and justice are the same.

Love is not liking.

Love justifies its means.

Love decides there and then.

Postscriptum: why?.
