Damage Control

Power, Love and Evil: Contribution to a Philosophy of the Damaged
by Wayne Cristaudo

Rodopi, 2008
(166 pages, $52.00, paperback)

reviewed byPeter J. Leithart

Power, Love, and Evil bills itself as a contribution to “philosophy,” but Wayne Cristaudo, an Australian philosopher who teaches European Studies at the University of Hong Kong, is not interested in ivory-tower speculation.
