Philosophy of Suffering: Metaphysics, Value, and Normativity

Some brief overview of book

Suffering is a central component of our lives. We suffer pain. We fall ill.

We fail and are failed. Our loved ones die. It is a commonplace to think that suffering is, always and everywhere, bad.

But might suffering also be good? If so, in what ways might suffering have positive, as well as negative, value? This important volume examines these questions and is the first comprehensive examination of suffering from a philosophical perspective.

An outstanding roster of international contributors explore the nature of suffering, pain, and valence, the value of suffering, and the relationship between suffering and both morality and rationality. Philosophy of Suffering: Metaphysics, Value, and Normativity is essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, cognitive and behavioral psychology as well as those in health and medicine researching conceptual issues regarding suffering and pain.
