About this product
- DescriptionDuring the nineteeth century, something vital went missing: the human being. In Unsuspecting Souls, Barry Sanders examines modern society's indifference to the individual. From the Industrial Revolution, where the disappearance of care for human beings begins slowly, to our own age, where societal events require less person-to-person interaction, Sanders laments that what makes us most human is slowly dying. Our days are filled with little but a continuous bombardment of information, demands on our attention, that brings us out of our world and into one of inhumanity and abstraction. We are losing entirely any palpable attachment to our physical reality. <br>And we've also lost the original sense of a collective consciousness. This loss has been fomenting for two centuries w, dating back to the rise of European powers and worldwide colonization. This has led to the tion that we need to define what is torture, an idea that t long ago would have seemed absurd, and need to pick our poisons among several forms of radical fundamentalisms, each one t only a threat to the other but a threat to humanity itself. From Edgar Allen Poe to Abu Ghraib, this is a fascinating and worrisome story, impeccably researched and compellingly written.
