Why do we suffer? On one reading, this is a question about the causes of physical and emotional suffering. On another, it is a question about whether suffering has a point or purpose or value. Michael Brady's ground-breaking book argues that suffering is vital for the development of virtue, and hence for us to live happy or flourishing lives.
