Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zygmunt Bauman's powerful and persuasive study of the postmodern perspective on ethics is particularly welcome. For Bauman the great issues of ethics have lost none of their topicality: they simply need to be seen, and dealt with, in a wholly new way. Our era, he suggests, may actually represent a dawning, rather than a twilight, for ethics.

Synopsis:

A philosophical and sociological investigation of the postmodern perspective on morality. Going beyond fashionable and simplistic reports of "the end of ethics", Bauman argues that the postmodern era has in fact opened up the possibility of a radically new understanding of the ethical.

About the Author

"Bauman must be given credit for placing what Kant called the mysteries of 'moral law inside me' as the ultimate riddle of morality. His criticism of all moral theories that reduce morality to the utilitarian rational choice of social actors is convincing." Jose Casanova, New School for Social Research
