BAUMAN?S LEVINEASIAN PURSUIT OF SOLUTION TO THE (IM)MORALITY OF INDIFFERENCE

Abstract

Author(s): Mustafa SOLMAZ

The aim of the research is to show how Bauman proposes Levinasian moral of “being for” as a solution against the changing of modernity's moral understanding which is based on the certainty and determinism into being indifferent in postmodernity. A qualitative study was done and it was applied to the method of document analysis and the content analysis which constitutes it. With the postmodern period, it was determined that there was a transition from a single understanding of truth to multiple truths. It has been found that the transition from a single understanding of truth to the multiple truths eliminates negative judgments against different moral experiences and establishes a basis for tolerance for them. It was understood that such a transformation contributed to the increase of freedoms significantly but also led to indifference. It has been found that in order to eliminate our indifference to each other, Levinasian “being for” namely having unconditional responsibility towards one another is important, but may lead to significant problems if there are no limits drawning it.
