Confrontation: A Conversation with Aude Lancelin by Alain Finkielkraut Confrontation: A Conversation with Aude Lancelin, Paperback (August 2014)

* Alain Badiou is probably the most widely read and influential philosopher in France today. Alain Finkielkraut is also a well-known public intellectual in France * Both have attracted controversy in the past and they hold strongly contrasting political views.

In the Name of Humanity by Alain Finkielkraut In the Name of Humanity, Hardback (January 2000)

An unsettling reflection on the twentieth century in its twilight hours in which we are asked to rethink our assumptions about universalism and humanism. While many people look to humanist ideals as a deterrent to nationalist chauvinism, Finkielkraut challenges the abstract idea of universalism by describing the terrible crimes "civilized" Europe has committed in its name.

Remembering in Vain by Alain Finkielkraut Remembering in Vain, Hardback (November 1992)

The author argues that the Barbie trial attests to the failure of international society to take responsibility for crimes of the state. He maintains that trying Barbie for actions on which the statute of limitations had run out blurred the definition of crimes against humanity.
