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.
