The world tells us that we should pursue our self-interest: career wins, high status, nice things. These are the goals of our first mountain. But at some point in our lives we might find that we're not interested in what other people tell us to want.

We want the things that are truly worth wanting. This is the second mountain. What does it mean to look beyond yourself and find a moral cause? To forget about independence and discover dependence - to be utterly enmeshed in a web of warm relationships? What does it mean to value intimacy, devotion, responsibility and commitment above individual freedom? In The Second Mountain David Brooks explores the meaning and possibilities that scaling a second mountain offer us and the four commitments that most commonly move us there: family, vocation, philosophy and community.

Inspiring, personal and full of joy, this book will help you discover why you were really put on this earth.

 

全世界都在告訴我們,我們應該追求自身利益:事業成功、崇高地位、美好事物。這些目標是我們追求的第一座山。但是在生命中的某個時刻,我們可能發覺自己對別人告訴我們該追求什麼並不感興趣。
 
我們想要的是真正值得擁有的東西。這就是第二座山。超越自我,找到道德上的理由是什麼意思?是指忘掉獨立,開始依賴--完全陷入溫馨的情感嗎?重視親密、奉獻、責任和承諾比個人自由重要是什麼意義?大衛•布魯克斯在《第二座山》中探討了攀登第二座山峰帶給我們的意義和可能性以及四種最常見可以幫我們攀登頂峰的條件:家庭、職業、哲學和社區。
 
這本鼓舞人心,關係到每個人,且充滿樂趣的大作將幫助您發現自己此生的真正使命。
