Books by Antoine Archange Raphael
This is a short article about my book "Concern, the sources of values under fire in Cows Island", recently published by Lulu (ISBN 10digit#0557295999; 13digit#9780557295999.

The making of “Concern,
The sources of values under fire in Cows Island”
By Antoine Archange Raphael

The backdrop for this dramatic work, Cows Island, may be anywhere in the world and even confused with the planet.

The elite as well as the ordinary people assume that we are living, as said a contemporary thinker, in the best possible world.

They profess such optimism despite the fact that throughout the island, there is a widespread distressing situation, confusion, perplexity, a lack of contact with the ideal of civilization, a sad and unthinkable state of affairs.

However, according to Frank Legar, the main character, a controversial mind, that optimistic view expresses a free assumption based on nothing; since we don’t know any other world, we shouldn’t embark in this kind of comparison.

Actually, he believes that he may imagine a better world than the one in which we are living.

Of course, he is a decent fellow, shying away from politics and other activities usually conducive to social turmoil. Therefore, he wouldn’t express and maintain his dissenting opinions everywhere. Yet, his views are sort of oozing out of his philosophy teaching in the classroom and affecting generations of students who appear, in the eyes of traditional leaders, too unruly, iconoclastic, because, like their professor, they turn open-minded.

Such intellectual tension, finally, reaches a larger audience at the court, when Frank allegedly has a love affair with one of his students, Lorraine Pinson, the daughter of one of the Cows Island masters.

Then, the expert witnesses come from the main sources of values: religion, philosophy, art, science and politics.

During this clash of ideas, the claims and the failure of these human activities are questioned.

Note: The book may be bought directly from .

There is a French version of this book entitled "L'altruisme, les sources de valeurs vivement critiquées dans l'Ile-aux-Vaches", carried by the internet site.
