Bernhard Schlink: National Guilt

Bernhard Schlink explores the phenomenon of guilt and the long shadow of past guilt both as a uniquely German experience and as a global one.


In his latest book, Guilt About the Past, acclaimed German writer Bernhard Schlink explores the phenomenon of guilt and the long shadow of past guilt both as a uniquely German experience and as a global one. He considers how to use the lesson of history to motivate individual moral behavior, how to reconcile a guilt-laden past, how the role of law functions in this process, and how the theme of guilt influences his own fiction. Based on the Weidenfeld Lectures he delivered at Oxford University, Guilt About the Past is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand how events of the past can affect a nation's future
