Samenvatting

Revolutionary critic of the philosophy of progress, nostalgic of the past yet dreaming of the future, romantic partisan of materialism...Walter Benjamin is in every sense of the word an unclassifiable philosopher. His essay was written in a state of urgency, as he attempted to escape the Gestapo in 1940, before finally committing suicide. Michael Lowy argues that it remains one of the most important philosophical and political writings of the twentieth century, in this scrupulous, clear and fascinating examination. Looking in detail at Benjamin's celebrated but often mysterious text, and restoring the philosophical, theological and political context, Lowy highlights the complex relationship between redemption and revolution in Benjamin's philosophy of history.

Recensie(s)

Sensitive to Benjamin's profound anxiety and the tragic vision of the world, Lowy traces the unfurling of this revolutionary melancholia, which is haunted by the recurrence of disasters. ... It is unusual to explore the depths of a text in this manner, but it is true that we have here the text of an exceptional thinker. -- Le Monde A work of great humanist import ... -- L'Humanite
