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.

Example text

32 We could say that the appearing of something is an appearance. But the original field of appearing, in which something is not distinguishable from nothing, always exceeds the field of appearances. The ideas remind us of this fact, because they take up again the field of pure appearing at the point where the understanding took leave of it. , appearances of nothing—whereas the understanding is always concerned with appearances of something = X. Since reason compels the understanding to divide up into an empirical and a transcendental employment, it follows that the necessarily antinomic conflict of reason with itself expresses the gap 48 HEIDEGGER, GERMAN IDEALISM, & N E O - K A N T I A N I S M between something and nothing: the understanding makes nothing of the transcendental employment of its own categories.

Because the synthesis keeps moving away from the immediately given object, only to draw nearer to an absolute origin, this is a time of lesser or greater density, not straight phases of presence or absence, that cannot be represented at all. Imagination is the ability to represent an object in intuition, even in its absence, provided that the object has been present at least once in the past. Thus, if the absolute completeness of appearances were itself possible in appearance, no transcendental schematism would be needed in order to synthesize this manifold.
