Distant Suffering: Morality, Media and Politics by Luc Boltanski
Sign in Create an account. Cambridge University Press Distant Suffering examines the moral and political implications for a spectator of the distant suffering of others as presented through the media. Sufferinf are the morally acceptable responses to the sight of suffering on television, for example, when the viewer cannot act directly to affect the circumstances in which the suffering takes place?
Luc Boltanski argues that spectators can actively involve themselves and others by speaking about what they have seen and how they were affected by it.

A possible way out of this crisis is suggested which involves an emphasis and focus on present suffering.
