In this important volume, the leading political theorist andphilosopher Norberto Bobbio confronts some of the most enduringmoral questions of our time. Written over the last two decades ofthe twentieth century, the essays in this volume develop some ofthe central themes in Bobbio's moral and political philosophy. Theyalso reflect his longstanding civil commitment to liberty,democracy, peace and equality.

The opening essay, 'In praise of meekness', analyses the virtue ofmeekness in its individual and social aspects. It identifies themeek person with the nonviolent, and meekness with the refusal toexercise violence against anyone. Meekness, therefore, is anon-political virtue - it is the antithesis of politics. The volumealso addresses the persistent classical problem of 'reason ofstate', as well as the more contemporary questions of tolerance andtruth, racism, prejudice and ethics. The problem of evil in themodern world is also discussed. All the essays display thesensitivity and depth of understanding that characterize Bobbio'swritings on current debates and historical controversies.

The book will be invaluable reading for all students and scholarsof politics, as well as those who are interested in the debatessurrounding morals, ethics and law.
