Abstract

VAN MARLE, Karin. On loneliness and the value of slow reflection. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.30, n.2, pp. 90-93. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v30i2.338.

In this article, the author considers the relationship of law, morality and reconciliation. Intrigued by the political and ethical stances taken by Arendt and McCarthy, the author supports notions of detachment, slowness and social reconciliation concerning contemporary political and ethical questions.

Keywords : reconciliation; slowness; common sense; Arendt; transformation.
