To Heal a Fractured World: The Ethics of Responsibility

by Jonathan Sacks - £16.99  Continuum (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780826480392 | ISBN 10: 082648039x

One of Judaism's most distinctive and challenging ideas is its ethics of responsibility. We have been given the gift of freedom and we in turn have to honour and enhance the freedom of others. More than in any previous generation, we have been tempted to imagine that it is the individual's needs which are the sole source of meaning. Here, Rabbi Sacks argues that such preoccupation with oneself is a mistake. Ethics are concerned with the life we live together, and the goods we share only exist by virtue of being shared. "The only force equal to a fundamentalism of hate is a counter-fundamentalism of love."
