The Evil of Banality : On the Life and Death Importance of Thinking, Hardback Book

The Evil of Banality : On the Life and Death Importance of Thinking Hardback

Description

Asking, How could they do it? about the many ordinary people who have been perpetrators and those who resist extensive evils - genocide, human trafficking, endemic sexualized violations of females, economic exploitation -- the book delves into historic, contemporary, national, and international examples.

The author, a moral philosopher, draws also on literature, psychology, economics, journalism, pop culture.

Reversing Arendt's banality of evil, she finds that mind-deadening banality, thoughtless conventionality, ambition, greed, status-seeking enable the evil of banality.
