Description - Reason and Horror by Morton Schoolman
Morton Schoolman explores what makes humankind capable of genocide in this fascinating interpretation of Horkheimer and Adorno. He recasts their views on diversity and individuality before and after the Holocaust, as well as re-examining Nietzsche and even Whitman and Tocqueville. He argues that the sensibility the Critical Theorists argued for is actually nurtured in a democracy, and concludes that to avoid the possibility of genocide people must also change the way they feel, and cultivate an aesthetic sensibility.
