‘Modernity and the Holocaust’, : Mengenali Karya Masterpiece Zygmunt Bauman

Holocaust mengharuskan adanya interogasi atas semua hal termasuk semua gagasan tentang nilai, sistim filsaat dengan etikanya, dan teori-teori ilmu sosil. Zygmunt Bauman melakukan interogasi terhadap elemen-elemen modernitas yang baginya memberi pemungkinan bagi terjadinya genosida Yahudi.Mimpi tentang kesempurnaan dunia dengan tuntutan nalar manusia justru membawa manusia ke lorong-lorong Auschwitz.

 

Dipetik dari buku Genosida dan Modernitas – Dalam Bayang-bayang Aushwitz yang diterbitkan oleh Tonggak Pustaka, ditulis ulang dari disertasi Genosida Dalam Bingkai Modernitas Zygmunt Bauman (STF Driyarkara, 2016) oleh penulisnya sendiri Antarini Arna.

 

 

Introduction Chapter : Sociology after the Holocaust

**Modernity and the Holocaust ZYGMUNT BAUMAN

 

 

“A stunningly original set of reflections on racism, extermination, rationality, individual responsibility in criminal societies, and the sources of obedience and resistance.”—Voice
Literary Supplement

 

 

“Such is the concentrated brilliance of Modernity and the Holocaust that it is sure to find an appreciative audience in every field of research which touches on the Holocaust (or which has been touched by it). Above all, to those who still hold faith with the notions of civilization, progress, and reason, this book will
sit alongside others which have challenged fundamental beliefs of our
time.”—Times Literary Supplement

 

 

“Intellectually rich and provocative. . . . This is a text which belongs in our classrooms as well as on our shelves. Exceptionally well written.”—Contemporary Sociology

Lecture Zygmunt Bauman – Lessons of the Holocaust – 27 januari 2012
 
 
 
 
Modernity and the Holocaust, first published in 1989, is arguably Bauman’s most famous book. For him, as for Hannah Arendt, the Holocaust was not an emotional, irrational outburst. Instead of a breakdown of modernity, it was its fullest realisation. It was the necessary outcome of routine bureaucratic procedures and rational cost-benefit analysis. Bauman explains the targeting of the Jews by the Nazis in terms of modernity’s intolerance toward ambivalence. The drawing and maintenance of boundaries and neat categories or dichotomies made European Jews particularly vulnerable as they did not fit neatly within any clear national and cultural demarcated boundaries. The image of the “rootless” Jew, often accused of spying
for other countries or working for some international secret organisation, is the result of modernity’s unease with group-identities that do not tie in with nationhood. Jewish identity reminds everyone how arbitrary the equation between group identity and nationhood really is. If this book can be read as an attempt on the part of Bauman to come to terms with his own Jewish identity, it is also part of his effort to reconceive of sociology as a modern academic discipline.
If modernity is giving way to postmodernity, to keep using the old vocabulary and operate according to traditional modes of thinking is no longer possible. Change is not only necessary; it is urgent if sociology is to be able to address contemporary audiences in a meaningful way. Bauman saw this task of disciplinary redefinition as a central element of his work from the 1990s on. With it, a new research theme emerges: the fluidity of the contemporary era.

Genosida dan Modernitas dalam Bayang-bayang Auschwitz”
2018
 

 

Di dalam proses modernisasi, selalu ada pihak yang menjadi korban atau sengaja dikorbankan. Namun wajah, nama dan penderitaan korban, seringkali tak tampak, terhalang oleh proyek raksasa bernama “Modernitas”.

Buku berjudul “Genosida dan Modernitas dalam Bayang-bayang Auschwitz” yang ditulis oleh Antarini Arna membahas dengan baik kritik terhadap modernitas dalam kehidupan manusia dan etika yang seharusnya diterapkan.

Buku ini relevan dengan kondisi terkini, di mana masyarakat dan para pemimpin di tingkat global maupun di tingkat nasional sedang berproses mencapai
modernisasi, juga sebagai pengingat bagi masyarakat danpemimpin, tentang
tanggung jawab terhadap korban atau “yang lain” dalam proses modernisasi.
