Nothing but history : reconstruction and extremity after metaphysics by David D Roberts( )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roberts analyzes the interplay of historical and antihistorical themes in the work of major thinkers from Nietzsche, Croce, and Heidegger to Gadamer, Foucault, Derrida, and Rorty. Through his lucid reassessment of these thinkers, he shows how the postmodern extremes and the reconstructive impulse can work in fruitful tension as we learn to cope with a world that ceaselessly slips and changes. We have reason to experience ourselves as history-making actors, but we also have reason to resist a world that seems to reduce us to nothing but history
Historicism and fascism in modern Italy by David D Roberts( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the early decades of the twentieth century, Italy produced distinctive innovations in both the intellectual and political realms. On the one hand, Benedetto Croce (1866-1952) and Giovanni Gentile (1875-1944) spearheaded a radical rethinking of historicism and philosophical idealism that significantly reoriented Italian culture. On the other hand, the period witnessed the first rumblings of fascism. Assuming opposite sides, Gentile became the semi-official philosopher of fascism while Croce argued for a renewed liberalism based on 'absolute' historicism." "In Historicism and Fascism in Modern Italy, David D. Roberts uses the ideological conflict between Croce and Gentile as a basis for a wider discussion of the interplay between politics and ideas in Italy in the twentieth century. Roberts examines the connection between fascism and the modern Italian intellectual tradition, arguing that the relationship not only deepens our understanding of generic fascism and liberalism but also illuminates ongoing dangers and possibilities in the wider Western world. This set of twelve essays by one of the leading scholars in the field represents an authoritative view of the modern Italian intellectual tradition, its relationship with fascism, and its enduring implications for history, politics, and culture in Italy and beyond."--Jacket
The totalitarian experiment in twentieth-century Europe : understanding the poverty of great politics by David D Roberts( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, David D. Roberts provides a challenging new understanding of totalitarianism by focusing on its historically specific dimensions. Rather than dismissing it in terms of national weaknesses or psychological aberrations, he shows how the totalitarian mode of collective action was a response to enduring tensions in the modern mainstream. By providing a fresh understanding of the novel aspirations fueling the three departures, The Totalitarian Experiment in Twentieth-Century Europe illuminates the practices of each regime, showing how the new mode of action yielded a characteristic combination of radicalization, narrowing, myth making - and disastrous failure
The syndicalist tradition and Italian fascism by David D Roberts( Book )

16 editions published between 1979 and 2019 in English and Italian and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fascist interactions : proposals for a new approach to fascism and its era, 1919-1945 by David D Roberts( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although studies of fascism have constituted one of the most fertile areas of historical inquiry in recent decades, more and more scholars have called for a new agenda with more research beyond Italy and Germany, less preoccupation with definition and classification, and more sustained focus on the relationships among different fascist formations before 1945. Starting from a critical assessment of these imperatives, this rigorous volume charts a historiographical path that transcends rigid distinctions while still developing meaningful criteria of differentiation. Even as we take fascism seriously as a political phenomenon, such an approach allows us to better understand its distinctive contradictions and historical variations"--

Understanding totalitarianism : the poverty of great politics by David D Roberts( )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, David D. Roberts provides a challenging new understanding of totalitarianism by focusing on its historically specific dimensions. Rather than dismissing it in terms of national weaknesses or psychological aberrations, he shows how the totalitarian mode of collective action was a response to enduring tensions in the modern mainstream. By providing a fresh understanding of the novel aspirations fueling the three departures, The Totalitarian Experiment in Twentieth-Century Europe illuminates the practices of each regime, showing how the new mode of action yielded a characteristic combination of radicalization, narrowing, myth making - and disastrous failure. By assessing totalitarianism in a more deeply historical way, this study suggests how we might learn further lessons from this troubling phase of modern political development."--Résumé de l'éditeur
