Philosphers since the time of Aristotle have been drawn to the human tension between viability and fallibility. For Augustine failure was part of original sin, for Boethius it was bad fortune, for Schopenhauer it shaped his pessimism and for Sartre it gave rise to "bad faith". Failure is pervasive and inevitable - epistemologically, cognitively, biologically and morally. In this book, Colin Feltham focuses on perceived individual embodied failure, i.e. what it is to be a failure and to live a failed life or rather, why we think the way we do. Is there a way, he asks, of living that transcends the dichotomy of success and failure? He brings a much needed perspective on our perpetual striving towards perfectibility. Time to accept our non-omniscience and to rethink what it means to fail.
