Living with Indifference is about the dimension of life that is utterly neutral,without care, feeling, or personality. In this provocative work that is anything but indifferent,Charles E. Scott explores the ways people have spoken and thought about indifference. Exploringtopics such as time, chance, beauty, imagination, violence, and virtue, Scott shows how affirmingindifference can be beneficial, and how destructive consequences can occur when we deny it.Scott’s preoccupation with indifference issues a demand for focused attention in connectionwith personal values, ethics, and beliefs. This elegantly argued book speaks to the positive valueof diversity and a world that is open to human passion.
