A Critique of Infinity by Summary

Levinas writes that Rosenzweig is too present in his work to be cited. This cryptic suggestion is unfolded into an in-depth confrontation. Both philosophers implement the same speculative gesture. Rosenzweig writes in post-Hegelian times; Levinas's thinking is enriched by phenomenology and marked by the Holocaust. Their critical exploration of the relationship to the infinite offers radically new perspectives on the language, the time and the other. The confrontation raises serious questions. How is a concept of alterity possible without accepting an identity? What are the concealed presuppositions? The questions lead to a critical analysis that cautiously explores the boundaries of dialogical thinking. But it is also the expression of the esteem held for the strong power of inspiration. As such, this book is both a critique and a tribute to Rosenzweig and Levinas. The book contains an exhaustive bibliography of the comparative studies. The manuscript was gold awarded by the Teylers Fellowship of Haarlem (the Netherlands).

Problems Unique to the Holocaust by Harry James Cargas Summary

Victims of the Holocaust were faced with moral dilemmas for which no one could prepare. Yet many of the life-and-death situations forced upon them required immediate actions and nearly impossible choices. In Problems Unique to the Holocaust, today's leading Holocaust scholars examine the difficult questions surrounding this terrible chapter in world history. Is it ever legitimate to betray others to save yourself? If a group of Jews is hiding behind a wall and a baby begins to cry, should an adult smother the child to protect the safety of the others? How guilty are the bystanders who saw what was happening but did nothing to aid the victims of persecution? In addition to these questions, one contributor considers whether commentators can be objective in analyzing the Holocaust or if this is a topic to be left only to Jews. In the final essay, another scholar assesses the challenge of ethics in a post-Holocaust world. This singular collection of essays, which closes with a meditation on Daniel Goldhagen's controversial book Hitler's Willing Executioners, asks bold questions and encourages readers to look at the tragedy of the Holocaust in a new light.

Game Over by Christophe Chalamet Summary

Modern science informs us about the end of the universe: "game over" is the message which lies ahead of our world. Christian theology, on the other hand, sees in the end not the cessation of all life, but rather an invitation to play again, in God's presence. Is there a way to articulate together such vastly different claims? Eschatology is a theological topic which merits being considered from several different angles. This book seeks to do this by gathering contributions from esteemed and fresh voices from the fields of biblical exegesis, history, systematic theology, philosophy, and ethics. How can we make sense, today, of Jesus' (and the New Testament's) eschatological message? How did he, his early disciples, and the Christian tradition, envision the "end" of the world? Is there a way for us to articulate together what modern science tells us about the end of the universe with the biblical and Christian claims about God who judges and who will wipe every tear? Eschatology has been at the heart of Christian theology for 100 years in the West. What should we do with this legacy? Are there ways to move our reflection forward, in our century? Scholars and other interested readers will find here a wealth of insights.

Chaos by Megan Derr Summary

Neuf dieux gouvernaient jadis le monde, jusqu'à ce qu'une ultime trahison ne les mène à leur perte. Depuis, le monde se meurt et seul le retour des Dieux disparus pourra le sauver. Isolée du monde depuis neuf cents ans, la Schatten est un pays d'ombres et de mystères. Le pouvoir de Teufel, l'Ombre du Licht déchu, maintient les étrangers à l'écart, et ses dangereuses Sentinelles empêchent les gens du pays de s'en échapper. Leur seul espoir de salut réside dans l'unique phrase d'une antique prophétie. Sasha se réveille sans aucun souvenir : il ignore où il est, comment il y est arrivé... et même qui il est. Tout ce dont il se rappelle, c'est son nom, et d'avoir été à la merci d'un monstre aux yeux violets. Tout ce qu'il possède sont les vêtements qu'il a sur le dos, les armes à sa ceinture, et un étrange anneau. Tout ce qu'il lui reste à faire, c'est explorer le pays de glace et de neige dans lequel il s'est perdu, dans l'espoir d'un jour trouver des réponses.

Noi trebuie să ucidem, şi afirmăm că a ucide este un lucru bun.ׅ“ – Mao „Comunismul este conștiința vinovată mondială. Nici o altă ideologie, într-un interval de timp comparabil, nu a cucerit atât de multe țări, atât de multe minți și nu a distrus atâtea vieți omenești. Și tocmai omul se află în inima cărții mele. Nu inventez nimic în această istorie a comunismului, nu există dialoguri fabricate, toate situațiile despre care vorbesc sunt atestate, în general sunt cunoscute, nu sunt eu cel dintâi care le descoperă. Meritul meu, singurul pe care îl am în raport cu această narațiune, este acela de a fi adus laolaltă sute de elemente disparate, pentru a vedea lucrurile în ansamblu. Am vrut să-l iau pe cititor de mână și să-l însoțesc de-a lungul istoriei dramatice a comunismului. Sper că am reușit; în această carte există carne și viață.“ – Thierry Wolton „O întreprindere extraordinară. Thierry Wolton sfâșie vălul care încă acoperă crimele regimului comunist și sfidează imperativele care-au împiedicat condamnarea lui chiar din timpul celui de-al Doilea Război Mondial.“ – Alain Besançon „Thierry Wolton propune o manieră inedită de a sublinia «caracterul universal malign» al ideii comuniste. Volumul 1 al trilogiei, al cărui subiect central sunt «călăii», arată cum, din URSS și până în Etiopia, fiecare generație de conducători preia de la precedenta metodele prin care «constrâng realitatea să se supună canoanelor utopiei», cu prețul e

Blood Wedding by Pierre Lemaitre Summary

Sophie Duguet--young, successful, and happily married--thought at first she was becoming absentminded when she started misplacing her mail and forgetting where she'd parked her car the night before. But then, as her husband and colleagues pointed out with increasing frustration, she began forgetting things she'd said and done, too. And when she was detained by the police for shoplifting, a crime she didn't remember committing, the confusion and blackouts that had begun to plague her took on a more sinister cast. Her marriage started to come apart at the seams. Now Sophie is in much deeper water: the young boy she nannies is dead while in her care, a tragedy of which she has no memory. Afraid for her sanity and of what the police will do to her when the body is discovered, Sophie goes on the run, changing her identity and appearance to evade the law. Forced to lead a very different kind of life, one on the margins of society, Sophie wonders where everything went wrong. Still, with a new name and a new life, she hopes that she'll be able to put her demons to rest for good. It soon becomes clear, however, that the real nightmare has only just begun . . .

The Fall of Robespierre by Colin Jones Summary

The day of 9 Thermidor (27 July 1794) is universally acknowledged as a major turning-point in the history of the French Revolution. At 12.00 midnight, Maximilien Robespierre, the most prominent member of the Committee of Public Safety which had for more than a year directed the Reign of Terror, was planning to destroy one of the most dangerous plots that the Revolution had faced. By 12.00 midnight at the close of the day, following a day of uncertainty, surprises, upsets and reverses, his world had been turned upside down. He was an outlaw, on the run, and himself wanted for conspiracy against the Republic. He felt that his whole life and his Revolutionary career were drawing to an end. As indeed they were. He shot himself shortly afterwards. Half-dead, the guillotine finished him off in grisly fashion the next day. The Fall of Robespierre provides an hour-by-hour analysis of these 24 hours.

The Globalizing World and the Human Community by Anonim Summary

Publication of the proceedings of the 3rd Seoul International Literature Forum held in May 2011 will make the papers presented at the forum available to a readership larger than the audience that participated in its various events. The theme of the forum was "The Globalizing World and the Human Community." Included under this general theme were sections dealing with various problems the writer faces in today's world: the conditions of increasing pressure in an enlarged market, which the writer cannot help but be aware of and be influenced by; the changing nature of the readership as it becomes more multicultural and global; and the status of writing in the developing multimedia world. Continuing with the topics of previous forums, there were also sections on ecological problems, which are being made all the more acute by the process of globalization-problems of enormous importance for all of humanity, but more sensitive issues for writers, with their deep involvement in the reality of people, whose life cannot be lived too far away from the earthly environment. The second part of the main theme stated above, "The Human Community," expresses what we suppose to be a major concern of many writers writing today: the possibility of a human community emerging out of the globalization-though we grant at the same time that absorption of a deeply personal kind in human reality also belongs among the writer's privileges. -From the Foreword by Kim Uchang

Stalin and Mao by Lucien Bianco Summary

China's ascent to the ranks of the world's second largest economic power has given its revolution a better image than that of its Russian counterpart. Yet the two have a great deal in common. Indeed, the Chinese revolution was a carbon copy of its predecessor, until Mao became aware, not so much of the failures of the Russian model, but of its inability to adapt to an overcrowded third-world country. Yet, instead of correcting that model, Mao decided to go further and faster in the same direction. The aftershock of an earthquake may be weaker, but the Great Leap Forward of 1958 in China was far more destructive than the Great Turn of 1929 in the Soviet Union. It was conceived with an idealistic end but failed to take all the possibilities into account. China's development only took off after--and thanks to--Mao's death, once the country turned its back on the revolution. Lucien Bianco's original comparative study highlights the similarities: the all-powerful bureaucracy; the over-exploitation of the peasantry, which triggered two of the worst famines of the 20th century; control over writers and artists; repression and labor camps. The comparison of Stalin and Mao that completes the picture, leads the author straight back to Lenin and he quotes the observation by a Chinese historian that, "If at all possible, it is best to avoid revolutions altogether."
