Political and social analyst Eusebius McKaiser asks in his first book A bantu in my bathroom why South Africans are so uncomfortable with deep disagreement.
Why do we lash out at people with opposing views without taking the time to engage logically with their arguments?
McKaiser is on a mission to raise the level of debate in South Africa. He provokes us from our comfort zones and lures us into the debates that shape our opinions and our society. With surprising candour and intensely personal examples, McKaiser examines our deepest-felt prejudices and ingrained assumptions.
McKaiser is a political and social analyst at the Wits Centre for Ethics. He is also a popular radio talk show host, a top international debate coach, a master of ceremonies and a public speaker of note. He loves nothing more than a good argument, having been both former National South African Debate Champion and 2011 World Masters Debate Champion. His analytical articles and columns have been widely published in South African newspapers and the New York Times. McKaiser has studied law and philosophy. He taught philosophy in South Africa and England.
