Einen Zusammenhang des Schönen mit dem Guten, der Ästhetik mit der Moral zu konstatieren, gilt als antiquiert. Dennoch wagt es Fritz J. Raddatz, der mit seinem nahezu sprichwörtlichen Esprit das intellektuelle Klima der Bundesrepublik entscheidend mitgeprägt hat, diesen Zusammenhang in den Mittelpunkt seiner literarischen Erkundungen zu stellen. Dabei argumentiert Fritz J. Raddatz weder als Moralist, noch redet er der »engagierten Literatur« das Wort. Am Beispiel herausragender deutschsprachiger Schriftsteller des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts beweist er vielmehr, wie sehr der Irrlauf des Gewissens Teil eines bedeutenden Werkes sein kann. Die Epoche zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen, die Zeit des Kalten Krieges mitsamt seinen ästhetischen und kulturpolitischen Verhärtungen sowie die Auswirkungen der Wiedervereinigung auf die ost- und westdeutsche Literaturszene bieten ihm dafür reiches Anschauungsmaterial. Fritz J. Raddatz vermag sich dieser Thematik auf ebenso subtile wie unorthodoxe Weise zu nähern, denn er schöpft aus Erfahrungen, die ihm einen privilegierten Zugang zu den unterschiedlichsten Facetten und Bedingungen literarischer Produktion gewähren.

Das javanische Schattentheater wayang kulit gilt als der Inbegriff javanischer Kunst und Ethik. Anhand einer historischen Analyse der wayang kulit Rezeptionsgeschichte kann jedoch gezeigt werden, dass der Stellenwert des wayang kulit als -klassische- Theaterform zum grossen Teil Produkt der in der Kolonialzeit entstandenen und von der kolonialen Elite weiterentwickelten Interpretationen ist. Wayang kulit wird in einen historischen und sozio-politischen Rahmen gestellt, um zu analysieren, wie die wissenschaftlichen Kategorien Europas das heutige Verstandnis vom wayang kulit gepragt und verandert haben."
