    The concept of UPB is simple, yet absolutely groundbreaking. Once I got it, it revolutionized my understanding of ethics. I can tell how important this knowledge will be for the raising of my children, who I will be able to teach rational and secular principles of moral behaviour.I actually have never finished this book, but since I have listened to hundreds and hundreds of podcasts by "Stef" I have a deep understanding of UPB and can debate it well, even though I am not a good debater.Have a try at refuting the existence of preferrable behaviour without accepting that truth is preferrable to falsehood!

    Molyneux erklärt in seinem Buch verständlich was "Universally Preferable Behaviour" ist und weshalb es aus seiner Sicht logisch zwingendes moralisches Verhalten ist.Ich habe das Buch aufgefasst wie einen grunderneuerten kategorischen Imperativ, logischer, anschaulicher erklärt.Kants Formel für den kategorischen Imperativ ist: „Handle nur nach derjenigen Maxime, durch die du zugleich wollen kannst, dass sie ein allgemeines Gesetz werde.“Ein ausgezeichnetes Buch für die Denker des 21. Jahrhunderts.

    Stefan Molyneux guides the reader to an objective moral framework, independent from God or the state. He then goes on explaining why these entities cannot exist in a moral world.

    Stef gives us a way to rationally interpret reality as simply as possible to pick up the Enlightenment where we left off with Kant.

    In this brief book, Stefan Molyneux explains step by step how humans can be moral without any mysticism at the the bottom.Read the book. Upon completion you will be able to refute that person who says, “Oh, you don’t believe in god? So murder is okay with you.”
