Ruth Chang, lawyer turned philosopher, researches hard choices. In her TED talk, she examines hard choices and posits that the understanding of hard choices uncovers a hidden power in each one of us. This is that each one of us has the power to create reasons for our choices.

“Far from being sources of agony and dread, hard choices are precious opportunities for us to celebrate what is special about the human condition, that the reasons that govern our choices as correct or incorrect sometimes run out, and it is here, in the space of hard choices, that we have the power to create reasons for ourselves to become the distinctive people that we are.”
