The hidden God; a study of tragic vision in the Pensées of Pascal and the tragedies of Racine by Lucien Goldmann( Book )

7 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of 'world visions', first elaborated in the early work of Georg Lukàcs, is used here as a tool whereby the similarities between Pascal's Pensées and Kant's critical philosophy are contrasted with the rationalism of Descartes and the empiricism of Hume. For Lucien Goldmann, a leading exponent of the most fruitful method of applying Marxist ideas to literary and philosophical problems, the 'tragic vision' marked an important phase in the development of European thought from rationalism and empiricism to the dialectical philosophy of Hegel, Marx and Lukàcs. The book is not a

The conservative imagination by Philip Malcolm Waller Thody( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging and provocative book seeks to contend the widely held view that 'the conservative imagination' is an oxymoron. Writing fluently and with wit, Philip Thody elucidates the definition of 'conservative thought'. Attitudes towards revolution, liberty and democracy are examined through the work of writers in political and literary genres ranging from Burke and de Tocqueville to Evelyn Waugh and Tom Stoppard. Most controversially, it is contended that within the context of his definition of the term, both Orwell and Camus can be perceived as conservative thinkers. However, whilst professing himself a conservative, the author is not ignorant of the short-comings of conservative thought, as reflected in the wide range of sources he quotes and examines. It is this, coupled with his ability occasionally to ridicule his own position, which prevents an unashamedly personal view from becoming a polemical tract, and which makes the book such illuminating reading for anyone interested in philosophical debate, whether from the right or the left of the spectrum
