What is the role of education in a world where we no longer have a clear vision of the future and where the idea of a single, universal model of humanity seems like the residue of a bygone age? What role should educators play in a world where young people find themselves faced with deep uncertainty about their future, where the prospects of securing a stable, long-term career seem increasingly remote and where intensified population movements have created more diverse communities in which different cultures find themselves living side by side, no longer bound together by the belief that the other would eventually be assimilated into ‘our' culture? Faced with the bewildering features of our liquid modern world, many young people are inclined to withdraw - in some cases into the online world of games and virtual relationships, in other cases into anorexia, depression, alcohol or even drug abuse, hoping to find shelter from a world perceived as more and more dangerous. Others launch into more violent forms of behaviour, like street gangs and the looting carried out by young people who have been excluded from the temples of consumption but are eager to participate in the ceremony. And all this happens while our politicians look on, uncomprehending and indifferent. In this short book Zygmunt Bauman - the leading social theorist of our liquid modern world, here in conversation with Riccardo Mazzeo - reflects on the predicament of young people today and on the role of education and the educator in a world where the certainties of our predecessors can no longer be taken for granted.

This is a deliberately provocative book. It critiques current student behaviour management practices, seeks to explain the flawed assumptions that justify those practices, and proposes how things could be better for children in our schools if different practices were adopted. It is one of the few books to offer alternative ways of addressing the issues associated with student behaviour at school, and exposes the field to serious and sustained critique from both a research perspective and a children’s rights ideological stance. The authors address the following questions: What ideas dominate current thinking on student behaviour at school? What are the policy drivers for current practices? What is wrong with common behaviour approaches? What key ideologies justify these approaches? How can we present ethical alternatives to current approaches? How can a human rights perspective contribute to the development of alternative approaches? In exploring these questions and some ethical alternatives to the status quo, the authors suggest practical ways to ‘answer back’ to calls for more authoritarian responses to student behaviour within our schools. In doing so, the authors advocate for reforms on behalf of children, and in their interests.

In this new book Zygmunt Bauman and Riccardo Mazzeo examine the contentious issue of the relation between literature (and the arts in general) and sociology (or, more generally, a branch of the humanities claiming scientific status). While many commentators see literature and sociology as radically different vocations, Bauman and Mazzeo argue that they are bound together by a common purpose and a shared subject matter. Despite the many differences in terms of their methods and their ways of presenting their findings, novels and sociological texts are not at cross-purposes. Indeed, it is precisely their differences that make them at once indispensable to each other and mutually complementary. The writers of novels and of sociological texts may explore their world from different perspectives, seeking and producing different types of ‘data’, but their products bear the unmistakable marks of their shared origin. They feed each other and depend on each other in terms of their agenda, their discoveries and the contents of their messages. In a world characterized by the continuous search for new sensations and the fetishism of consumption, they bring fundamental existential questions back to the public agenda. Literature and sociology reveal the truth of the human condition only when they stay in one another's company, remaining attentive to each other's findings and engaged in a continuous dialogue. For only together can they rise to the challenging task of untangling and laying bare the complex intertwining of biography and history as well as of individual and society that totality we are constantly shaping while being shaped by it.

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 la «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) per mostrare poi, in un corpo a corpo con le opere di Jonathan Littell e di Günther Anders, che la 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 la cui produzione ha richiesto quantità esorbitanti di denaro) contribuisce a erodere la nostra sensibilità già gravemente indebolita e oggi prossima alla cancellazione.

Das Buch analysiert die Versuche der Nationalsozialisten eine eigene moralische Ordnung in philosophischen, medizinethischen und ideologischen Texten zu begründen. Dabei zeigt Wolfgang Bialas, wie klassische moralische Denkfiguren durch die nationalsozialistische Rassenethik eines artgerechten Humanismus ideologisch umfunktioniert wurden. Gegenüber den Juden gab es keinerlei moralische Verpflichtungen. Einen eigenen Abschnitt widmet das Buch den Bemühungen der Täter, sich nach der Zerschlagung des Nationalsozialismus mit dem Verweis auf ihre ideologische Indoktrinierung für moralisch unzurechnungsfähig zu erklären.

Wir leben in einer Welt des Übergangs von der "festen" zur "flüssigen" Moderne. Unsicherheit und Ungewissheit prägen den Alltag vieler Menschen, denen ohne stabile gesellschaftliche Formen und Institutionen ein Bezugsrahmen sowohl für ihr Handeln als auch für langfristige Lebenspläne fehlt und die sich gezwungen sehen, ihr Leben aus einer endlosen Abfolge von kurzfristigen Projekten und Episoden zusammenzuflicken. Konzepte wie "Karriere" oder "Fortschritt" können nur noch von wenigen aktiv verfolgt werden, und "in Sicherheit zu leben" bedeutet schon heute vielerorts - vorausgesetzt, man kann es sich leisten -, bewacht zu werden und abgeschottet zu sein von den Wirren der globalen Megacitys, von Armut und dem "menschlichen Abfall". Der renommierte Soziologe Zygmunt Bauman erkundet in diesem Band die endemische Unsicherheit, die unser heutiges Leben formt. In "flüchtigen Zeiten" wird dem Individuum ein sehr hohes Maß an Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit abverlangt und die permanente Bereitschaft, Taktiken zu ändern, Verpflichtungen und Loyalitäten ohne Bedauern fallenzulassen und Gelegenheiten je nach kurzfristiger Verfügbarkeit zu ergreifen. Leben bedeutet mit der Ungewissheit umzugehen.
