Hindsight

The Promise and Peril of Looking Backward

Mark Freeman

Mark Freeman argues here that hindsight--looking back over the past from the standpoint of the present--can be a profoundly important source of understanding, insight, and moral growth. Indeed, hindsight can be, and often is, a source of truth--of a sort, Freeman contends, that is only available by looking backward. Drawing on psychology, philosophy, literature, memoir, and personal experience, this engaging volume offers an insightful exploration of the role of hindsight both in discerning the truth of one's past and in crafting a good and worthy life.
