Between the Monster and the Saint: Reflections on the Human Condition

Author(s): Richard Holloway

Society & Culture

Provocative, wide-ranging and full of wisdom, Between the Monster and the Saintis a brilliant book about our place in the world. Being human isn't easy. We might think that consciousness and free will give us control over our lives but our minds are dangerous and unpredictable places. We are susceptible to forces we don't understand. We are capable of inflicting immense cruelty on one another - violence, torture and rape - and yet we also have the capacity to be tender, to empathise, to feel. In his thought-provoking new book Richard Holloway holds a mirror up to the human condition.
