Publisher Description:
"George Klein's voice is pensive, poetic, simple in a deep way. It is, ultimately, the warm voice of a man who is forever intrigued by life, who loves to decipher what he sees but who equally loves the undecipherable."
-- Amos Oz As Albert Camus's famous dictum has it, the only truly important philosophical question is suicide, or whether life is worth living. Now, in Pietà , his latest collection of essays, George Klein -- distinguished biologist, writer, Holocaust survivor, and humanist -- faces this question head-on, in a series of meditations on subjects ranging from the misuses of science to the vital importance of art, music, and literature to surviving catastrophes like the Holocaust and AIDS. "Pietà " is a passionate book of scientific and personal ethics, inspired by tragic events that resonate in the consciousness of each of us.
