CONSIDERING THE AFTERLIFE Reading James Wood’s review of “This Life,” by Martin Hägglund, I was mystified by his argument that the main consideration in defining personal morality is whether one views existence as finite or eternal (Books, May 20th). As a lifelong atheist, I’ve never considered the principal difference between my value system and that of religious people to be my belief that existence ends with death. The critical distinction, rather, is that, whereas the believer submits to a moral framework received from a supposedly divine source, the atheist constructs his or her own. Contrary to Wood’s argument, time is not all that we atheists have if there is no God. We have one another, and that fact should be the cornerstone on which we build our moral foundation.

goings on about town: this week

In 1978, Maurice Sendak began to design a new production of Mozart’s “Magic Flute,” which débuted in Houston two years later. (A diorama of a scene in the second act is pictured above.) A dozen Sendak-designed operas and ballets followed. He often turned to the archives of the Morgan Library for inspiration and later returned the favor, bequeathing nine hundred of his preparatory works to the museum. The exhibition “Maurice Sendak: Drawing the Curtain” opens on June 14. HIP-HOP South Florida has reëmerged as a hotbed of hip-hop in recent years, with several purveyors of the dark and boisterous SoundCloud-rap phenomenon coming from Dade and Broward Counties. Miami’s Denzel Curry has been there from the beginning—he was still in high school when he joined the iconoclastic collective Raider Klan (or RVIDXR KLVN),…

tables for two: mercado little spain

10 Hudson Yards A celebrity chef and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee aren’t usually the same person. But the cheerful Spanish-born José Andrés, who cooked at elBulli, Ferran Adrià’s Catalonian bastion of avant-garde cuisine, before moving, in 1993, to D.C., where he laid the groundwork, with Jaleo, for an empire (he now has more than thirty restaurants), is the exception. He has a penchant for turning up in disaster zones to distribute thousands—and, in post-Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico, millions—of free hot meals. And that’s not to mention Andrés’s pro-immigration activism—an immigrant to the U.S. himself, he recently fed thousands of migrants in Tijuana, to call attention to the status of refugees in Mexico. So how does one reconcile this world-class humanitarianism with a venture in Hudson Yards, the oft-reviled multibillion-dollar complex…

comment: continental shift

Angela Merkel, who has been the Chancellor of Germany for nearly fourteen years, has a measuredness about her that can mask a profound optimism, above all about the democratic process. Last week, speaking at the Harvard commencement ceremony, she remembered how, as a young woman in what was then East Berlin, she walked toward the Wall each day on her way home from work. “At the last moment,” she had to “turn away from freedom.” That wall had fallen, but, Merkel said—naming no names—new ones were being built within societies and between nations. Democracy could not be “taken for granted,” but neither, she told the graduates, should people assume that they were powerless: “Let us surprise ourselves by showing what is possible.” Both realizations may already be taking shape in Europe.…

alabama postcard: escorts

Three blocks from the Alabama governor’s mansion, in Montgomery, a police officer stood outside a small brick building as the sun rose. “It’s just a job,” he said, “but my personal opinion is: what two grown people decide is what two grown people decide.” He nodded toward a parking lot, where a dozen people wearing rainbow-colored vests that read “Clinic Escort” were waiting. Abortions are performed here once a week, usually by doctors flown in from out of state. The clinic hired the officer last month, after Governor Kay Ivey signed the country’s most severe abortion ban; if it takes effect, victims of rape and incest will be required to give birth. A patient headed for the clinic door, holding a male companion’s hand. Her face was hidden beneath a beach umbrella…
