Disobey

Disobey - Frederic Gros

Disobey

Frederic Gros

Among the many disturbing aspects of our time, the most shocking may be our passivity, our willingness to become spectators in a disaster from which we ourselves will be unable to escape. In response, philosopher Frédéric Gros examines the roots of disobedience. He draws on sources from Socrates to Thoreau, uncovering evidence from events as diverse as the Eichmann trial and the experiments of Stanley Milgram.
Gros claims that philosophy itself is inherently disobedient. It asks us never to give in to the obvious or the commonplace, and forces us to rediscover a sense of political responsibility. Disobey is a call for critical democracy and ethical resistance.
