Jonathan Glover:

Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century - Taschenbuch

2001, ISBN: 0712665412

[SR: 506539], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780712665414], Pimlico, Pimlico, Book, [PU: Pimlico], 2001-03-06, Pimlico, An ominously dark cover reflects the mood for this sobering and intermittently brilliant appraisal of 20th-century morality or, to be fatuous, of men behaving very badly. Jonathan Glover, author of Causing Death and Saving Lives, argues that the 20th century has been less punctuated than characterised by atrocities because of rampant technology and the disappearance of an external moral force to guide people. Interweaving readable narrative with skilful analysis, Glover considers the major human disasters of the period, from the regimes of Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot to its defining events. The two world wars, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the Cuban missile crisis, Vietnam, Rwanda and Yugoslavia receive painstaking autopsies, culminating in an appraisal of Nazi Germany, which, though it slaughtered fewer people than Stalin's Soviet Union, and proportionately fewer than PolPot's Khmer Rouge, was unique in its ruthless use of the instrument of government to enforce its evil. Glover's approach to history is based on anecdotal and eyewitness accounts, refreshingly clear of statistical marshland, and while he does not shy from unequivocal condemnation, he shows wise restraint in a volume that could as easily have been entitled "Hindsight." Physical distance from battle leading to emotional detachment, distillation of Social Darwinism, "positive hatred", brutalising removal of dignity to render the victim no more than an animal, "cold jokes", lack of individual responsibility and the cult of tribalism are all identified as having contributed to a spirit of partisan malevolence to which, for Glover, the phrase "never again" is the only adequate ethical response. "Where were the philosophers?" runs the refrain of his battle-cry. Watching inactive and inadequate, like most of the rest of us, is the depressingly recurrent reply. The darkness is not unremitting; it is consciously entitled Humanity, and Glover is an optimist, albeit with grave concerns, who strives to highlight individual acts of kindness that transcend circumstance to offer hope for the future. After 10 years of research and writing, he has produced a stirringly intelligent and urgent lament for an arduous century, pockmarked by those who sought to dominate it, and unable to forget as selectively as it remembers. -- David Vincent, 64618011, Psychologie & Beratung, 1322717031, Angwandte Psychologie, 1322723031, Bemessung & Prüfung, 64641011, Beruf & Organisationen, 64704011, Betriebspsychologie, 64633011, Bildung & Schulungen, 64631011, Entwicklungspsychologie, 64703011, Ethnopsychologie, 1322718031, Experimentelle Psychologie, 1322719031, Forensische Psychologie, 1322720031, Geschichte der Psychologie, 64638011, Hypnose, 1322716031, Jugendpsychologie, 64621011, Kinderpsychologie, 64625011, Klinische Psychologie, 64630011, Kreativität & Genialität, 64626011, Lebenshilfe, 64648011, Nachschlagewerke, 64632011, Neuropsychologie, 64643011, Persönlichkeit, 64660011, Philosophie der Psychologie, 64644011, Physiologische Aspekte, 64640011, Psychische Erkrankungen, 64645011, Psychoanalyse, 64646011, Psychopharmakologie, 64647011, Psychotherapie, 64650011, Sexualität, 64656011, Soziale Psychologie & Interaktionen, 64657011, Statistik, 64661011, Strömungen, 1322722031, Suizid, 1322721031, Symptomatik, 64617011, Gesundheit, Geist & Körper, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65608011, 20.

Humanity - neues Buch

2001, ISBN: 9780712665414

ID: 6283035

This book is about history and morality in the twentieth century. It is about the psychology which made possible Hiroshima, the Nazi genocide, the Gulag, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and many other atrocities. In modern technological war, victims are distant and responsibility is fragmented. The scientists making the atomic bomb thought that they were only This book is about history and morality in the twentieth century. It is about the psychology which made possible Hiroshima, the Nazi genocide, the Gulag, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and many other atrocities. In modern technological war, victims are distant and responsibility is fragmented. The scientists making the atomic bomb thought that they were only providing a weapon: how it was used was to be the responsibility of society. The people who dropped the bomb were only obeying orders. The machinery of the political decision-taking was so complex that no one among the politicians was unambiguously responsible. No one thought of themselves as causing the horrors of Hiroshima. Jonathan Glover examines tribalism: how, in Rwanda and in the former Yugoslavia, people who once lived together became trapped into mutual fear and hatred. He investigates how, in Stalin's Russia, Mao's China and in Cambodia, systems of belief made atrocities possible. The analysis of Nazism explores the emotionally powerful combination of tribalism and belief which enabled people to commit acts otherwise unimaginable. Drawing on accounts of participants, victims and observers, Jonathan Glover shows that different atrocities have common patterns which suggest weak points in our psychology. The resulting picture is used as a guide for the ethics we should create if we hope to overcome them. The message is not one of pessimism or despair: only by looking closely at the monsters inside us can we undertake the project of caging and taming them.
