I temi sono quelli cari a Savater, cioè i grandi temi dell'etica (aggiornati al tempo di internet): la realtà, la verità, la libertà vera o fittizia dei social network, l'uguaglianza dei diritti in una società diseguale, la democrazia e la demagogia, il terrorismo. Quello che cambia, però, è il metodo: Piccola bussola etica per il mondo che viene è costruito sulla base di domande rivolte a Savater dai ragazzi di due scuole. Un libro fondamentale per la centralità che attribuisce all'atto stesso del domandare. Andrea Bajani, "la Repubblica" «Per quanto cambi il contesto esterno, per quanto profondamente possano variare i costumi, per quanto la tecnologia possa alterare la nostra percezione dello spazio e portare nelle nostre case fiumi di informazioni, per quanto la società si trasformi, il fatto di essere umani ci obbliga a domandarci come dovremmo rapportarci al prossimo. Perché siamo umani grazie al fatto che altri umani ci donano umanità. E che noi gliela restituiamo.» In un dialogo appassionante, uno dei più brillanti filosofi contemporanei torna a parlare con i giovani delle sfide etiche che la società, la politica di oggi e i cambiamenti tecnologici pongono loro.

Man and His Symbols owes its existence to one of Jung's own dreams. The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather than just by psychiatrists, and therefore he agreed to write and edit this fascinating book. Here, Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams. Convinced that dreams offer practical advice, sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus, the reader will gain new insights into himself from this thoughtful volume, which also illustrates symbols throughout history. Completed just before his death by Jung and his associates, it is clearly addressed to the general reader. Praise for Man and His Symbols “This book, which was the last piece of work undertaken by Jung before his death in 1961, provides a unique opportunity to assess his contribution to the life and thought of our time, for it was also his firsat attempt to present his life-work in psychology to a non-technical public. . . . What emerges with great clarity from the book is that Jung has done immense service both to psychology as a science and to our general understanding of man in society, by insisting that imaginative life must be taken seriously in its own right, as the most distinctive characteristic of human beings.”—Guardian “Straighforward to read and rich in suggestion.”—John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate “This book will be a resounding success for those who read it.”—Galveston News-Tribune “A magnificent achievement.”—Main Currents “Factual and revealing.”—Atlanta Times

Herodotus tells us that not all of the three hundred Spartan warriors died at the hands of Xerxes, King of the Persians, in the battle of the Thermopylae: two were saved bringing a life-saving message back to the city . . . This is the saga of a Spartan family, torn apart by a cruel law that forces them to abandon one of their two sons - born lame - to the elements. The elder son, Brithos, is raised in the caste of the warriors, while the other, Talos, is spared a cruel death and is raised by a Helot shepherd, among the peasants. They live out their story in a world dominated by the clash between the Persian empire and the city-states of Greece - a ferocious, relentless conflict - until the voice of their blood and of human solidarity unites them in a thrilling, singular enterprise.
