AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Like fellow South Australian resident J.M. Coetzee, Peter Goldsworthy has, in a number of his works, sought to raise crucial ethical issues for a predominantly post-Christian Western world where problems posed by technologies and their products precipitate new moral, ethical and psychological dilemmas. It is increasingly clear that our current legal frameworks and traditional moral guides are inadequate in dealing with developments over the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Both John Coetzee and Peter Goldsworthy then, have used fiction to raise these issues, and reaching imaginatively 'outside the box,' drawn our attention to the directions in which we might seek at least partial solutions.'
