Tales of good and evil, help and harm by Philip P Hallie( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tales of Good and Evil focuses on what Hallie calls the "lucid mystery" of those who choose to help others in need, through the life stories of three people. Hallie tries to understand the ambiguous decency of Major Julius Schmahling, the German officer in charge of Chambon, who looked the other way as the villagers did their rescue work. He follows his portrait of the major with a riveting account of Joshua James, the Massachusetts man who in the early nineteenth. century founded the Life-Saving Rescue Service, later institutionalized by the Coast Guard, in which he and his crew of oarsmen regularly risked life and limb saving the passengers and sailors of ships foundering off the coast in violent storms. The final section of the book is a profile of Hallie's Connecticut neighbor, Katchen Coley, who founded The Connection, an organization devoted to rehabilitating drug- and alcohol-dependent young men and women. Tales of Good and. Evil is also the story of Hallie himself, as he tries to understand his own ambiguous moral actions, first as a child in the Jewish ghetto of Chicago, fighting to protect himself and his younger brother from anti-Semitic bullies, then as a World War II artilleryman, and finally as a philosopher of ethics who realized he could be coldly objective in studying the viciousness of human beings throughout history. In this study in moral ambiguity, written with great eloquence, we see a distinguished ethicist's concern with grasping the essence of good and evil both in daily life and under extraordinary circumstances

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A ninety-minute special which shares the intimate testimonies of eloquent men and women as they discuss their dramatic confrontations with the force of evil -- and to share the discovery that exploring evil leads to revelations about goodness. In the fall of 1987, some of America's most provocative and articulate thinkers gathered near Austin, Texas to consider the problem of evil. [Speakers] discuss the issue of evil in the 20th century, from its revelation in wars and the Holocaust, to the continuing manifestation of crime and other forms of human suffering. The special report includes the personal witness of people who have faced the question of evil in their own lives and in society around us, and thus brings a philosophical question of the existence of evil down to the level of ordinary affairs."--1988 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. The program includes footage from the presentations by Maya Angelou, Philip Hallie, Chung-Liang Al Huang, Raul Hilberg and Dr. Samuel Proctor at a three-day symposium entitled Understanding evil, held at the Institute for the Humanities in Salado, Texas. In interviews interspersed throughout the program, the speakers and others attending the symposium discuss their personal experiences with evil and what they feel they have learned from the symposium
