Poor Things
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Poor Things is a novel by Scottish writer Alasdair Gray , published in 1992. It won the Whitbread Novel Award in and the Guardian Fiction Prize for 1992. The novel was called "a magnificently brisk, funny, dirty, brainy book" by the London Review of Books and is a departure from Gray's usual subject-matter of Glasgow realism and fantasy. However, its Victorian narrative takes in Gray's previous concerns with social inequalities, relationships, memory and identity.
edit Story
The main body of the work centres on Bella Baxter, a woman whose early life and identity are the subject of some ambiguity. That ambiguity is complicated by her husband Archibald McCandless's autobiography, "Episodes from the Early Life of a Scottish Public Health Officer," which distorts the truth about his life with Bella. This is followed by Bella's (or Victoria's) refutation of its facts, suggesting that her "poor fool" of a husband has concocted a life for her from the prevailing gothic and romantic motifs of the period: it "positively stinks of all that was morbid in that most morbid of centuries". This is reinforced by the novel's intricate echoes of Mary Shelley 's Frankenstein These fictitious historical documents are prefaced with an introduction by one Alasdair Gray, who presents himself as the editor of the following text, and relates the 'discovery' of the papers by his real-life friends, Michael Donnelly and Elspeth King. The introduction also hosts a critique of Glasgow City Council's treatment of its culture and heritage in the neglect of the local history museum, and a brief mention of Glasgow's time as the

Alasdair MacIntyre is a philosopher specializing in Ethics . He is currently a Senior Research Professor of Philosophy at The University of Notre Dame . His core interests include ethics practical reason Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas He is a key figure in the modern resurgence of interest in virtue ethics , arguing that ancient and medieval approaches to moral thought have been more successful than modern approaches, an idea he placed arrestingly to work in his "disquieting suggestion" in After Virtue . He traces a line of decay from the abandonment of Aristotelianism by Descartes and his followers, through the Enlightenment to the philosophy of emotivism , which he characterises as the final, and fully incoherent, end of this train of development. Because of his call for restoring a moral center by endorsing coherent systems of ethical values, he is often depicted as a conservative thinker. His focus, however, is on the fact that meaningful moral progress is possible only within coherent traditions of ethical values. Otherwise, the different ideas of rationality underlying radically different conceptions of ethics do not allow for sharing values and, therefore, for being able to reach (moral) consensus.
