Main Currents of Marxism: Its Rise, Growth and Dissolution, Volume 1: The Founders

From thinker Leszek Kolakowski, one of many giants of twentieth-century highbrow heritage, comes this hugely infuential research of Marxism. Written in exile, this 'prophetic paintings' offers, based on the Library of Congress, 'the so much lucid and complete background of the origins, constitution, and posthumous improvement of the process of inspiration that had the best effect at the 20th century'.

As We Go Marching: A Biting Indictment of the Coming of Domestic Fascism in America

As We cross Marching is John T. Flynn's vintage paintings from 1944 on how wartime making plans introduced fascism to the US. Flynn was once a admired journalist and the infrequent case of an American public highbrow who resisted the onslaught of either the struggle and welfare states through the interval within which FDR governed the United States.

Example text

In a more differentiated, 14 horst junginger secularized, and scientiÀcally oriented society the obligation fell to the study of religion. Rewarded with Ànancial support, new jobs, and a signiÀcant extension of inÁuence, this task was received very favorably. Measuring up to it conformed to the intrinsic religious alignment still being extant. Repressed from consciousness or just lying dormant, the religious impetus of the study of religion received a new calling. Yet this wake-up call was, in fact, the kiss of death.

The idea of a genetically determined religion bears much more resemblance to older religious assumptions of a prima causa or a causa efÀciens engendered by an exterior prime mover. It would be absurd to think that things come to an end in the world with its creation. Likewise, the postulation of a racial origin of religion did not determine its further course unalterably. Nor did it terminate the duty and freedom of men to arrange their lives in accordance with the commandments emanating from one’s belonging to a particular race.

It would – and in fact did – hamper the unbiased examination of Eliade’s past as well as that of the study of religion under fascist inÁuences in general. 32 Recently, two excellent studies appeared which contribute immensely to the aim of a proper contextualization of Eliade,33 though we are still far away from having the full picture. Until today, no critical edition of Eliade’s Romanian writings has been published. 35 The originals Handoca refers to continue to be largely inaccessible and it is unclear to what extent he utilizes or relies on copies (or on copies of copies) of a doubtful provenance.
