Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil

Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil - Alain Badiou, Peter Hallward

“Evil is the moment when I lack the strength to be true to the Good that compels me.”

 

“It is necessary to examine, in a detailed way, the contemporary theory of Evil, the ideology of human rights, the concept of democracy. It is necessary to show that nothing there leads in the direction of the real emancipation of humanity. It is necessary to reconstruct rights, in everyday life as in politics, of Truth and of the Good. Our ability to once again have real ideas and real projects depends on it.”
