5.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish I had come across book this at University 30 novembre 2013
Par Lamppu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I wish I had read this book in the 70s when I was at university and communism and the Soviet Block were considered trendy. It made me sick and I felt very isolated. I couldn't believe people could be so totally blind. Best to feel vindicated late than never.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Contunuing relevance of Aron's classic 18 mars 2000
Par MARGARET& PETER - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Although Aron's treatise was published many decades ago as a brilliant and unsurpassed analysis of French intellectual culture, it has direct relevance for contemporary fads and foibles of Western cultural and intellectual life. Much of what goes on in the academy today becomes lucid when read within Aron's analytical framework. This book should be read by all who care about the education of their children.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Lesson for Our Time 13 septembre 2012
Par Stanley P. Santire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The title of this book, "The Opium of the Intellectuals" is a clever play on the Karl Marx reference to religion as the opium of the people. This is not an easy book to read. It requires considerable concentration. Read it as a stimulant to thought rather than mere history. As such it has the potential for considerable reward. Raymond Aron provides a lesson for our own time if in our reader's mind we merely replace the phrase "Stalinist Soviet communism" with "American Tea Party" or, in any country from North America to the Middle East, "religious fundamentalism." When he wrote it in France, many French intellectuals were rationalizing the horrors of Stalin as justified by idealized long term benefits; i.e. people suffered Stalin's terror as a price to achieve a hoped for idealized future in the Soviet Union. Clearly Aron's "Opium" was the hypocritical idealism of intellectuals, particularly French intellectuals, who believed this. As he pointed out, they heaped praise on the Soviet Union while balancing it out with condemnation of their own society. The hypocrisy was two-fold. First they insisted on justifying suffering in their time by the people under Stalin as the price of a greater society for people yet to be born. They, these rationalizing French intellectuals safe in their extremely tolerant society, did not share in that suffering. Second, and perhaps most egregious, they were free to criticize their own French government - which they did ceaselessly - despite the fact that Stalin would have had them killed if they criticized his government should they have lived in the Soviet Union. Today, we have a much milder phenomenon in uncompromising politics in America and even more extreme in the religious intolerance on vivid display in the Middle East, both quite destructive in the long run. For example simplistic ideas that place blind market forces above comprehensive consideration of what is truly in the best interest of all citizens is, like Aron's opium, a loss of rational political and social analysis. Applying his opium metaphor to America would probably have surprised Aron considering his generally positive views of American society of his time as expressed in the book.
