From the Publisher"A dazzling demonstration of philosophy’s publicrelevance."
Nancy Fraser, New School for Social Research
“Building on the conceptual framework advanced in his lastbook, Radical Evil, Bernstein argues that what defines the post9-11 world is an abuse of evil. In the face of the pernicious moralabsolutism of neo-conservatism and the religious right, Bernsteinadvances a pragmatic fallibilism that is consistent with both thefragility and tenacity of democracy. It is the great merit of thisbook to show that such a fallibilism is not only continuous with areligious world-view, but is its enabling condition. If philosophy,as Hegel insists, is its time comprehended in thought, thenBernstein gives his readers a philosophical wake-up call to thinkabout evil in the face of so much unthinking moralism.”
