Donald Sassoon “resuscita” Karl Marx per un’intervista esclusiva, nella quale il grande filosofo ha l’occasione di togliersi qualche sassolino dalla scarpa. Marx ne ha per tutti: spara a zero sui mostri sacri delle dottrine economiche e politiche; riafferma le proprie idee contro gli abusi e gli equivoci di epigoni e detrattori; rivendica la validità del suo lavoro quale chiave di comprensione del mondo contemporaneo. Graffiante e irriverente, Marx passa in rassegna personaggi come Clinton, Blair, Hegel, Lenin, e argomenti come il femminismo, l’America, il terrorismo e molto altro. L’intervista impossibile di Sassoon a Marx diventa allora il pretesto per un consuntivo sulla storia della sinistra, ovvero una riflessione sui suoi passi falsi e un invito a ritrovare il nucleo ancora vitale che la sostiene. Pubblicata sulla rivista britannica “Prospect” nell’ottobre 2003,Intervista Immaginaria con Karl Marx viene qui proposta per la prima volta in lingua italiana.

Il pentimento non è il semplice rifiuto di ciò che si è stati, ma è la volontà determinata ad essere diversi, a individuare la profondità delle proprie colpe e a liberarsi da esse per rinascere a nuova vita. Nelle pagine di questo libro, pubblicate nel 1921 all’interno della sua opera L’eterno nell’uomo, il filosofo Max Scheler analizza lo spontaneo emergere del senso di colpa che segue gli effetti negativi delle azioni di cui siamo praticamente e moralmente responsabili. Pentirsi significa riconoscere la colpa come propria e, cos“ facendo, elevarsi al di sopra dell’errore compiuto e predisporsi a futuri comportamenti virtuosi. L’autentico pentimento si rivela allora una delle vie più complesse, e spesso dolorose, che mettono in relazione la finitezza della nostra persona umana con l’infinita misericordia divina. Nonostante il riferimento dichiarato alla dottrina cattolica, la riflessione di Scheler supera l’orizzonte confessionale e afferma la possibilità, non potendo eliminare il male, di superarlo volta per volta attraverso l’incessante lavoro su noi stessi.

Figura preminente della pittura neoclassica, David fu appassionato assertore degli ideali della Rivoluzione Francese. Arrestato dopo gli avvenimenti del Terrore giacobino, riuscì a scampare alle esecuzioni termidoriane e durante i mesi di prigione concepì l’idea di un grande dipinto storico che potesse esprimere un nuovo messaggio politico e morale. Nacque così il quadro raffigurante Le Sabine che intervengono a sedare le ostilità tra romani e sabini: un chiaro invito alla riunificazione del popolo francese. David si fece interprete dei sentimenti e delle aspirazioni di un’intera nazione. La storia antica, infatti, per lui non era solo un repertorio di belle forme, ma un valido modello di virtù civica. In occasione della presentazione dell’opera, il pittore pubblicò un opuscolo divulgativo per spiegare il tema del quadro e la democratica, quanto allora inusuale, scelta di rendere Le Sabine visibile a tutti dietro pagamento di un biglietto. Questa brochure, illustrando le ragioni dell’artista, è il necessario complemento alla comprensione di un tassello importante di storia dell’Europa moderna.

The Human Condition

The past year has seen a resurgence of interest in the political thinker Hannah Arendt, “the theorist of beginnings,” whose work probes the logics underlying unexpected transformations—from totalitarianism to revolution. A work of striking originality, The Human Condition is in many respects more relevant now than when it first appeared in 1958. In her study of the state of modern humanity, Hannah Arendt considers humankind from the perspective of the actions of which it is capable. The problems Arendt identified then—diminishing human agency and political freedom, the paradox that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions—continue to confront us today. This new edition, published to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of its original publication, contains Margaret Canovan’s 1998 introduction and a new foreword by Danielle Allen. A classic in political and social theory, The Human Condition is a work that has proved both timeless and perpetually timely.

Présentation de l'éditeur : "The spatiotemporal conjunction is a fundamental aspect of the juridical reflection on the historicity of law. Despite the fact that it seems to represent an issue directly connected with the question of where legal history is heading today, it still has not been the object of a focused inquiry. Against this background, the book's proposal consists in rethinking key confluences related to this problem in order to provide coordinates for a collective understanding and dialogue. The aim of this volume, however, is not to offer abstract methodological considerations, but rather to rely both on concrete studies, out of which a reflection on this conjunction emerges, as well as on the reconstruction of certain research lines featuring a spatiotemporal component. This analytical approach makes a contribution by providing some suggestions for the employment of space and time as coordinates for legal history. Indeed, contrary to those historiographical attitudes reflecting a monistic conception of space and time (as well as a Eurocentric approach), the book emphasises the need for a delocalized global perspective. In general terms, the essays collected in this book intend to take into account the multiplicity of the spatiotemporal confines, the flexibility of those instruments that serve to create chronologies and scenarios, as well as certain processes of adaptation of law to different times and into different spaces. The spatiotemporal dynamism enables historians not only to detect new perspectives and dimensions in foregone themes, but also to achieve new and compelling interpretations of legal history. As far as the relationship between space and law is concerned, the book analyses experiences in which space operates as a determining factor of law, e.g. in terms of a field of action for law. Moreover, it outlines the attempted scales of spatiality in order to develop legal historical research. With reference to the connection between time and law, the volume sketches the possibility of considering the factor of time, not just as a descriptive tool, but as an ascriptive moment (quasi an inner feature) of a legal problem, thus making it possible to appreciate the synchronic aspects of the 'juridical experience'. As a whole, the volume aims to present spatiotemporality as a challenge for legal history. Indeed, reassessing the value of the spatiotemporal coordinates for legal history implies thinking through both the thematic and methodological boundaries of the discipline."

This book was the first broad exposé of the social and environmental damage inflicted by the growth of corporate agriculture in California. Factories in the Field—together with the work of Dorothea Lange, Paul Taylor, and John Steinbeck—dramatizes the misery of the dust bowl migrants hoping to find work in California agriculture. McWilliams starts with the scandals of the Spanish land grant purchases, and continues on to examine the experience of the various ethnic groups that have provided labor for California's agricultural industry—Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, Filipinos, Armenians—the strikes, and the efforts to organize labor unions

Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. It is, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri demonstrate in this bold work, the new political order of globalization. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras. Rather, today's Empire draws on elements of U.S. constitutionalism, with its tradition of hybrid identities and expanding frontiers. More than analysis, Empire is also an unabashedly utopian work of political philosophy.
