“Even Enemies Can Show Respect:” Prospects for Golden Rule Living in South Africa | Online Lecture by Dr Wahbie Long
March 2, 2022 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
In his recent book, Nation on the Couch (MF Books, 2021), Dr Wahbie Long advances the Golden Rule – treating others as you would have them treat you, and not doing to others what you would not have them do to you – as a strategy for addressing the relational pathologies that typify life in South Africa. In a traumatized society crippled by debilitating affects, however, how possible is it to keep such reflective capacities alive? In this talk, Wahbie examines the prospects for Golden Rule living in South Africa.
