Raimond Gaita

Gratitude and truthfulness

Award winning author and philosopher Raimond Gaita has been recognised for his exceptional contribution to moral philosophy and his original and sometimes controversial views of the nature of ethical thought.

Gaita’s award-wining memoir, Romulus, My Father, was a book that, according to respected writer Helen Garner, ‘changed the quality of the literary air in this country’. The dignity and humanity at the core of Romulus pervade all Gaita’s books.

His most recent work, a book of essays expressing gratitude to people who have mattered to him, explores truth, truthfulness, self and voice.
