Para los angeles mayoría, los angeles ética no es más que una mera exposición y discusión de los deberes positivos y negativos que tendrían que regir el comportamiento humano. Pero esa concepción de los angeles ética queda coja. Le falta el desarrollo de los angeles vida buena y los angeles felicidad, dos aspectos sumamente importantes y a los que no se les presta los angeles necesaria atención.
A esa otra ética, los angeles ética erótica, que no habla de obligaciones, sino que aconseja y recuerda, que abarca todo tipo de ámbitos y contextos, tanto de los angeles vida pública como de los angeles privada, dedica Javier Sádaba este libro.Porque esa es los angeles ética que atiende a nuestros deseos teniendo siempre presente, frente al realismo chato, que somos un haz de posibilidades.
Con humor, con sensibilidad y con elegancia, el autor de los angeles vida buena defiende en esta obra l. a. imaginación, los distintos placeres y el respeto a las diferentes formas de sentir, y reivindica, de forma apasionada, una ética que dé l. a. palabra a los sentidos, a los sentimientos y, de manera muy especial, a los deseos.
