In this sequel to "Modernity and the Holocaust" and "Legislators and Interpreters", Zygmunt Bauman provides a philosophical and sociological investigation of the postmodern perspective on morality. Going beyond fashionable and simplistic reports of "the end of ethics", he argues that the postmodern era has in fact opened up the possibility of a radically new understanding of the ethical.

Zygmunt Bauman's powerful and persuasive study of the postmodern perspective on ethics is particularly welcome. For Bauman the great issues of ethics have lost none of their topicality: they simply need to be seen, and dealt with, in a wholly new way. Our era, he suggests, may actually represent a dawning, rather than a twilight, for ethics.About the Author:
