Editorial Reviews

Contributions from a 1996 symposium examine moral and ethical implications of the Holocaust and link them to more recent attempts at mass population elimination. Subjects include Emmanuel Levinas and the primacy of ethics in post-Holocaust philosophy, science and the determination of good, and paradigmatic shifts in the ethical interpretation of the Nazi genocide. Authors reflect critically on their colleagues' essays, creating an insightful dialogue. The editor teaches philosophy at Claremont McKenna College. Annotation c.
