Che cos’è il male oggi? In che modo si può dire che le sue manifestazioni, le sue spinte, le sue modalità di aggredire il tessuto del mondo e delle persone che lo abitano si siano modificate?Zygmunt Bauman, uno dei più grandi pensatori viventi, già nel 1989, con Modernità e olocausto, aveva riletto le atrocità del Terzo Reich sovvertendo l’opinione comune che si fosse trattato un «incidente» della Storia e dimostrando che invece los angeles «società dei giardinieri» della modernità aveva raggiunto con l’olocausto il suo risultato più esemplare. In questo libro Bauman compie un ulteriore decisivo passo avanti nell’identificazione del «male» ai giorni nostri. E lo fa con una ricognizione delle tesi fallaci che si erano affermate nel Novecento (dalla «personalità autoritaria» di Adorno alla «banalità del male» di Hannah Arendt) in keeping with mostrare poi, in un corpo a corpo con le opere di Jonathan Littell e di Günther Anders, che los angeles presa di distanza dagli esiti dei nostri atti distruttivi (resa non solo possibile, ma obbligata, dalle mirabilia tecnologiche e dalla costrizione «diversamente morale» a non sprecare armi l. a. cui produzione ha richiesto quantità esorbitanti di denaro) contribuisce a erodere l. a. nostra sensibilità già gravemente indebolita e oggi prossima alla cancellazione.
