By Jean François Billeter

"Tchouang-tseu est le plus remarquable des philosophes chinois. On ne sait pas grand-chose de sa personne. Il est probablement mort vers 280 avant notre ère. Nul ne sait très bien quelle half lui attribuer dans l’ouvrage qui porte son nom et qu’on appelle 'le' Tchouang-tseu. Cet ouvrage réunit des textes de Tchouang-tseu lui-même et d’auteurs anonymes qui ont été proches de lui, se sont inspirés de lui après sa mort ou ont été associés à son nom par l. a. suite. L’ouvrage n’est pas gros, il est un peu moins lengthy que les quatre Évangiles. C’est un classique : un ouvrage qui a été beaucoup lu, cité et commenté au cours des siècles, mais aussi mal lu et mal compris, ou compris selon des préjugés qui n’ont plus de raison d’être aujourd’hui. Je me suis efforcé de l’aborder d’un regard neuf. Au seuil de ce livre, le lecteur me demandera peut-être de lui dire quelle sorte de philosophe est Tchouang-tseu. Je ne peux pas répondre parce que je ne puis le classer dans aucune catégorie connue. Il faut que le lecteur voie et juge par lui-même." (Jean François Billeter)

En liten bok om ondska

Finns godhet? Finns ondska? Finns det i så fall onda och goda människor eller enbart onda och goda handlingar?

Ann Heberlein undersöker och ifrågasätter våra föreställningar om ondskan. Hur ska guy kunna förstå personer som Anders Eklund, Marc Dutroux och Josef Fritzl som fullt medvetande begått avskyvärda handlingar mot barn? Hur ska guy se på barnen som själva blir förövare: Harris och Klebold från Columbine excessive eller Mary Bell? Hur var den institutionaliserade ondskan vi mötte i Abu Ghraib, det forna Jugoslavien eller Förintelsen överhuvudtaget möjlig?

Och vad är det med männen egentligen? Varför begås de flesta onda handlingar av män?

Många frågor. males Ann Heberlein hjälper oss också att formulera några av svaren. Hon menar att ondskan inte alls är obegriplig. Den är inte heller ett eget väsen. Snarare har den sitt ursprung i ojämlikhet och utsatthet och den hämtar näring ur människors rädsla och maktlöshet.

Det enda obegripliga är vår ovilja att göra mer för att stoppa den.
