The care of the witness : a contemporary history of testimony in crises / Michal Givoni

Publication | Library Call Number: BD238.T47 G5813 2016
Book cover

"My preoccupation with witnessing mutated through several phases before it turned into the book you are holding. It germinated while I was writing my PhD dissertation at the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas at Tel Aviv University, when the gulf between the theory of testimony that so enchanted contemporary thinking around the ethics of memory on the one hand, and the humanitarian practice of witnessing I was studying on the other, first struck me as philosophically awkward and politically suspect"-- Provided by publisher.
