Evil and moral blindness lurk in what we take as normality and in the triviality and banality of everyday life, and not just in the abnormal and exceptional cases. The distinctive kind of moral blindness that characterizes our societies is brilliantly analysed by Zygmunt Bauman and Leonidas Donskis through the concept of adiaphora: the placing of certain acts or categories of human beings outside of the universe of moral obligations and evaluations. Adiaphora implies an attitude of indifference to what is happening in the world – a moral numbness.

Moral Blindness: The Loss of Sensitivity in Liquid Modernity. by Zygmunt Bauman and Leonidas Donskis. Evil is not confined to war or to circumstances in which people are acting under extreme duress.

Moral Blindness cannot be understood in isolation from Bauman's earlier works, particularly Liquid Modernity (2000). The book is a written exchange of ideas between Bauman and Donskis. It is composed of five chapters, plus an introduction. Each chapter opens with a set of questions Donskis poses and it continues with both authors' reflections. The authors ask how we can understand morality in the liquid modern world and their thesis of moral blindness centres on the concept of the "adiaphorization of human behaviour".

Bauman gets the essence of a society whose values and relationships have been modified by the internet and the media. He emphasizes how the omnipresence of social networks induces the lack of values like loyalty or empathy at any level of human relations. This and many other arguments are exposed in a clear and simple manner, so you do not need to be a philosopher or a humanist to catch the essence of each exposed concept. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to have a better understanding about the new dynamics in our contemporary society

Maybe it's an in-group out-group sort of thing like an echo chamber, maybe just too easy to get lost in all the verbosity. I found myself either agreeing with the author or feeling mystified about the point being made, i.e. the why of it. Having followed liberal media for the last few years I didn't find new ideas presented here.

Just 3 pages into the book and I was mesmerized! Deep thinking put very articulately into the pages of this book in a way all can understand.
Trash Obsession
It is a very high level dialogue between two scientists that permeates our social and individual behavior. I suggest the reader not to stop reading when the understanding fail because as the dialogue continues the understanding comes back. The authors seem to be independents from any submission to specific groups of thought academic or not.

Bauman has been a significant voice in the battle to keep our humanity in the face of modern commercialism and ethical blindness in politics. His questions, and many of his answers remain among the finest expositions of a humane responses to capitalism, totalitarianism and communism. He continues bravely to battle the forces of darkness, moral dissociation and human indifference. While this is not his best book, it is still well worth reading, though I found Liquid Life and Liquid Love to be much better.

I like the format of this book – a dialogue between two experts. That said I found the book heavy going and not by any means a light read. It is a fascinating subject and something which should concern everyone in modern society. We seem to have developed a total unconcern for the suffering of others as evidenced by incidents such as people on a road bridge being urged to jump because they are holding everyone up.

This is not a book for the general reader and unless you’re used to reading at the level of university text books then you are going to struggle with this book as I did. I would love to read a book on the same subject aimed at the general reader as it is something which we all need to be aware of. There is always a danger if we are too wrapped up in our busy lives that we will cease to be aware of others.
