Der Kleinfabrikant Otto Weidt (1883–1947) betrieb zu Beginn der 1940er Jahre in der Rosenthaler Straße 39 in Berlin-Mitte eine als wehrwichtig eingestufte Besenmacherwerkstatt. Seine Belegschaft bestand überwiegend aus blinden und gehörlosen Juden, die er so vor Verfolgung und Deportation zu schützen versuchte. Für seinen Einsatz wurde er 1971 posthum als »Gerechter unter den Völkern« geehrt. Weniger bekannt ist das frühere Leben Weidts: In der Kaiser­zeit war er in der anar­chistischen Arbeiterbewegung aktiv und wurde von der Politischen Polizei überwacht. Den Ideen und Idealen des Anarchismus blieb er aber auch später verbunden. Zeitlebens war er ein strikter Gegner von Militarismus, Nationalismus und staatlicher Bevormundung. Robert Kain nähert sich zunächst dem Anarchisten Weidt und zeichnet ein detail­liertes Bild der anarchistischen Bewegung zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Anschließend untersucht er die Zeit zwischen dem Ersten Weltkrieg und der Eröffnung der »Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt«. Der Autor behandelt hier neben Weidts Militärdienst, Ehen und Scheidungen auch dessen Erblindung um 1924 und den daraus resultierenden Weg zum Bürstenmacher. Die umfangreichsten Kapitel widmen sich natürlich detailliert dem aufopferungsvollen Einsatz von Otto Weidt für jüdische Mit­menschen und wie er sich dabei in einem weit verzweigten Hilfsnetzwerk für NS-Verfolgte bewegte. Abschließend befasst sich die fundamentale Arbeit mit der Rolle der Blindenwerkstatt in der Nachkriegszeit, Otto Weidts Engagement für die Instandsetzung eines Alten- und Kinderheims der Jüdischen Gemeinde in Nieder­schönhausen und der Wahrnehmung und Würdigung seiner Person nach 1945. Ein biographischer Anhang gibt Auskunft über viele in der »Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt« einst Beschäftigten.

Some scientific studies suggest that human beings are innately selfish and that Christian virtues life self-sacrifice are a delusion. In this intriguing volume, esteemed theologian Thomas Jay Oord interprets the scientific research and responds from a theological and philosophical standpoint, providing a state-of-the-art overview of love and altruism studies. He offers a definition of love that is scientifically, theologically, and philosophically adequate. As Oord helps readers arrive at a clearer understanding of the definition, recipients and forms of love, he mounts a case for Christian agape and ultimately for a loving God.

Does religion encourage altruism on behalf of those who do not belong? Are the very religious more likely to be altruistic toward outsiders than those who are less religious? In this book Pearl M. Oliner examines data on Christian rescuers and nonrescuers of Jews during the Holocaust to shed light on these important questions. Drawing on interviews with more than five hundred Christians—Protestant and Catholic, very religious, irreligious, and moderately religious rescuers and nonrescuers living in Nazi-occupied Europe, Oliner offers a sociological perspective on the values and attitudes that distinguished each group. She presents several case studies of rescuers and nonrescuers within each group and then interprets the individual’s behavior as it relates to his or her group. She finds that the value patterns of the religious groups differ significantly from one another, and she is able to highlight those factors that appear to have contributed most toward rescue within each group.

Few concepts are more unshakable in our culture than "free will," the idea that individuals are fundamentally in control of the decisions they make, good or bad. And yet the latest research about how the brain functions seems to point in the opposite direction, with fresh discoveries indicating the many ways in which humans are subject to influences well beyond the control of the conscious self. In The Self Beyond Itself, acclaimed scholar Heidi M. Ravven offers a wide-ranging and bold argument for a new vision of ethics, one that takes into account neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology, challenging the ways in which we view our actions—and, indeed, our selves. In a work of breathtaking intellectual sweep and erudition, Ravven offers a riveting and accessible review of cutting-edge neuroscientific research into the brain’s capacity for decision-making—from "mirror" neurons and "self-mapping" to surprising new understandings of group psychology. The Self Beyond Itself also introduces readers to a rich, alternative philosophical tradition of ethics, rooted in the writing of Baruch Spinoza, that finds uncanny confirmation in modern science. Illustrating the results of today’s research with real-life examples, taking readers from elementary school classrooms to Nazi concentration camps, Ravven demonstrates that it is possible to build a theory of ethics that doesn’t rely on free will yet still holds both individuals and groups responsible for the decisions that help create a good society. The Self Beyond Itself is that rare book that injects new ideas into an old debate—and helps us consider anew our understanding of ourselves and of our world.
