This denouncement of bad behavior is as sadly relevant today as it was in 1979 when this book was first published, as we have proved over these last four years. It is another uncompromising moral statement by Ungerer in the form of a series of masterful images. “There’s one thing I can tell you for sure,” he once said. “There’s no such thing as a sheltering sky.” And Babylon proves he means it.
Perché io sono io e non sono te? Chi ha creato Dio? Se qualcuno mi picchia, va bene se lo picchio anch’io? Perché esiste il denaro? La mia vita potrebbe essere solo un sogno? Esiste il “niente”? Perché dobbiamo amare gli altri e non solo noi stessi?
Che siano state fatte duemila anni fa o ieri, da un bambino di otto anni o da un uomo di ottanta, le grandi domande filosofiche sono queste. E nell’affrontarle Tomi Ungerer dimostra un’intelligenza peculiare, diretta contro ogni pregiudizio e ristrettezza mentale: le sue risposte alle domande dei bambini francesi e tedeschi sorprendono, divertono, provocano e soprattutto fanno riflettere. Un libro di filosofia che fa venire voglia di pensare, a tutti i lettori, adulti e bambini.
