Aggressive humanism

Aggressive humanism is a term coined by Alice von Bieberstein and Erdem Evrem (2016) to address interventions and actions that provoke strong public reaction and debate. Agresive humanism comes in reaction to the fact that neither the provision of the information about violence and deaths nor the circulation of images managed to provoke the change.
