(Vortrag Steven Lukes)
Vortrag von Steve Lukes, Professor of Sociology an der NY University. "Confronting the atrocities of our times–mass killings, genocide, mass rape, torture and so on–we reach for the question ‘why’? It has been repeatedly asked, among others by Hannah Arendt, Arthur Koestler, Zygmunt Bauman, Bruno Bettelheim, Christopher Browning, Daniel Goldhagen and Timothy Snyder. In posing this question, what kind of answer are we looking for? What would count as satisfying answers and where should we look for them?"
