$73.99

Paperback
Life in Fragments is a continuation of the themes and motifs explored in Zygmunt Bauman's study, Postmodern Ethics (Blackwell, 1993). Our new era, Bauman argues, may yet prove to represent a dawning, rather than a twilight for ethics, emancipated from the false consciousness entailed by modernity. He develops these themes further in this commentary on postmodern ethics and moralities.

- Publisher Life in Fragments is a continuation of the themes and motifs explored in Zygmunt Bauman's acclaimed study, Postmodern Ethics (Blackwell, 1993). Described by Richard Sennett as a major event in social theory, Postmodern Ethics subverted the pieties of subversion which rule the postmodern imagination, arguing for an ethic of being with the Other, beyond the fashionable imperative of anything goes or the deconstruction of identity through difference.
