What makes life worth living? It is essentially the way how we relate to others and how we lead our relationships. For this we need consensus, we need to agree with the people we are in relation with and empathise with each other. But there is a philosophical paradigm that severely impairs consensus building and empathetic interaction: the idea of truth. In a social context, truth is, till today a frequently used term, but on closer look it is an illusion, because truth pretends to be something that does actually not exist.

As truth is one-sided and brings an authoritarian claim to power and hierarchy into our interactions, it disrupts consensus-building and empathetic co-operation. In this book, we break with the principle of truth and thus with 2000 years of philosophical tradition. We propose a new way to reason moral and ethical thinking - a consensus model based on physically understood subjectivity. We also discuss problems of existing philosophical concepts, in particular the free will and the concept of responsibility. In addition, we explain concrete aspects of a consensus model in the field of psychotherapy and, building on this, present further considerations on the social implications of a consensus-oriented attitude.
