Thinking About Love & Truth & Justice

Book - 1999
Rate this:
In this marvellous and challenging book, Raimond Gaita discusses ideas about love and hatred, good and evil, guilt and forgiveness. Reflecting on concepts of racism, genocide, justice, truth and truthfulness, he raises questions about our search for lucidity and meaning in life. As his focus moves from Mabo and land rights to the Holocaust and the stolen children, Gaita argues that our deepest sense of a common humanity depends on the understanding that every human life is precious. Moving, wise and inspiring, A Common Humanity explores personal, political and philosophical ideas about the kind of society and the sort of public conversation we might have in the twenty-first century.
