On why Gaita doesnt describe Eichmann as sacred

Alexander Segal, Morgan Luck

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article we examine a potential problem for Raimond Gaita (born 1946). It arises from the way that Gaita, in Good and Evil: An Absolute Conception, affirms the value of describing Eichmann as sacred, yet says that he, as a non-religious person, is unable to describe Eichmann as sacred. We argue that the tension in Gaita's position does not in reality amount to a contradiction, and so we defuse the potential problem.
