The first two sections deal with the question of naturalism. While strict naturalism maintains a view of nature based on the meaninglessness of nature, relaxed naturalism advocates a more pragmatic view of nature that allows for human meaning and practice. I argue that a relaxed form of naturalism is highly problematic due to its pragmatic emphasis. I also argue that a pragmatic naturalism is not able to answer two basic ethical demands, namely the demand of universalism and the demand of freedom. In the third and final section I sketch my view of a Christian ethics that is able to answer these demands. This ethics takes the form of a critique of our ideas of a good life, arguing that living ethically is a constant struggle both against and for the fragile character of human freedom.
