Description - Good and Evil by Raimond Gaita

Raimond Gaita, author of the acclaimed The Philosopher's Dog , returns with a new edition of Good and Evil: An Absolute Conception , the book which first sparked off much of the current interest in the topic of 'evil'. In Good and Evil , Raimond Gaita draws moral philosophy away from the academic study of ethics and considers instead how real people actually think, talk and feel about morality. He explores our ideas of good and evil, and their link to our respect for human beings and the 'preciousness' of each individual. Drawing on work ranging from Plato and Wittgenstein to George Orwell and Primo Levi, Gaita ultimately shows that questions about good and evil come down to questions about the meaning of our lives. This revised edition features a new preface and afterword by the author.
