About the Author

Michael L. Morgan is Chancellor's Professor of Philosophy and Jewish Studies at Indiana University. His publications include Dilemmas in Modern Jewish Thought, Beyond Auschwitz, Interim Judaism, and Discovering Levinas.


'Participating in a recent revival of philosophical interest in the phenomenon of shame and its relation to our identities and practical lives, Michael Morgan's book makes a passionate and philosophically intelligent case for regarding shame as fundamental to the kinds of social beings we are.' - Alice Crary, the New School for Social Research, USA 'Deeply engaging and very easy to read. The subject Morgan addresses is timely and important. On Shame provides philosophical analysis in a way that should be accessible to the educated reader, and mixes this analysis effectively with current events, literature, film and psychology. I suspect many people will be grateful for the help it provides in thinking more deeply about difficult issues that cannot be ignored.' - Marya Schechtman, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
