Wie umwerfend darf ein Lächeln sein?
The moral compass for daily life
Not only life, but also love often confronts us with moral questions: Who do love letters belong to – the sender or the receiver? Is it alright to fake an orgasm? Can you celebrate a divorce? Can an emancipated woman fancy a 'real man'? Is it alright to ask for an ‘I love you’? No one knows their way around everyday moral issues better than Rainer Erlinger. He has been answering moral dilemmas in his weekly column ‘A Question of Conscience’ in the Süddeutsche Zeitung magazine for many years, posed by readers who ask his advice. Collected here is a selection of the best questions and answers to do with love and life.
