Duties and Delights by Tzvetan Todorov

Book Description

Tzvetan Todorov is one of Europe's leading intellectuals. Beyond his work in cultural and literary theory, philosophy and psychoanalysis, Todorov's influence is extraordinarily far-reaching specifically because of the clarity of his writing and his refusal to be bound by systems of thought and disciplinary straitjackets. Todorov's many writings include "The Poetics of Prose", "The Conquest of America", "Mikhail Bakhtin: The Dialogical Principle", "Facing the Extreme: Moral Life in the Concentration Camps", "On Human Diversity", "Hope and Memory", "Imperfect Garden: Lessons from the Twentieth Century" and "The New World Disorder: Reflections of a European". "Duties and Delights" presents a series of interviews with Tzvetan Todorov which illuminate the paths that he has taken, the paths that he has crossed and the paths that he has opened up for others.

Inner Enemies of Democracy by Tzvetan Todorov Inner Enemies of Democracy, Hardback (September 2014)

The political history of the twentieth century can be viewed as the history of democracy s struggle against its external enemies: fascism and communism. This struggle ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet regime.

Totalitarian Experience by Tzvetan Todorov Totalitarian Experience, Hardback (October 2011)

Recounts the author's own experiences with totalitarianism in his native Bulgaria, offering a historical look at communism. This title reveals the essence of totalitarian ideology, the characteristics of daily life under communism, and the irony of democratic messianism.

Limits of Art by Tzvetan Todorov Limits of Art, Hardback (December 2010)

Explores the complex relations between art, politics, and ethics. This book traces the intimate relationship between avant-garde art and radical politics in pre-revolutionary Russia, pre-fascist Italy, and pre-Nazi Germany. It re-examines the age-old question of what can be expected from art and whether it should be emancipated from ethics.
