Δηλώνω εντυπωσιασμένος από τον Todorov. Πρόκειται για ένα πνεύμα διαγεύστατο. Μέσα σε ένα βιβλιαράκι 150 σελίδων, ξεδιπλώνει τη σκέψη του, απλά γραμμένη. Θα διαβάσω ό,τι βρω δικό του, όπως θα κάνω και με τον Steiner.

I don't think I can praise this work highly enough.

In a mere 150 pages, with wide spacing, Todorov examines what we mean by the Enlightenment, what it meant to the people articulating its ideals in the 18th century, and the differing arguments they raised in their discussions and essays on the new ideas arising from the collapse of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the rise of science, developments in technology, the Reformation (which resulted in at least a further two types of Christianity (th

لن تكفيك قراءة واحدة لهذا الكتاب حتى تحقق جلّ الفائدة منه، هذا الكتاب من الكتب التي تقرأ مرارا.
تودوروف يدافع عن التنوير والأنوار التي اتهمت كثيرا بدعمها للأنظمة الشمولية أو حتى مفهوم الديموقراطية الخاطيء.

لمن هذا الكتاب:
لمحبي الفلسفة..وباحثيها....ولمن يؤمن بالعقلانية والتنوير.

دمتم بود.

I almost bought this book when it came out in December 2009, but I had read at least one review which was not very positive. I wish I could find whatever I had read to see whether I agree with it. I have tried but I failed.

I have read at least three other Tzetvan Todorov books that I am certain of: Facing the Extreme, Imperfect Garden, and Hope and Memory. I have enjoyed them all, even when I have not entirely agreed with him.

3.5 stars. More a Beginner's Guide to the Enlightenment than anything else. I was hoping it would directly engage with specific aspects of contemporary culture, but it was broader and more general in scope, and aimed at a historical overview of Enlightenment philosophies. Not a waste reading it, by any means, but not what I was hoping for.

The traditional adversaries of the Enlightenment – obscurantism, arbitrary authority and fanaticism – are like the heads of the Hydra that keep growing back a

يقول تودوروف:
"ظهرت مجموعة من التيارات المعاصرة حولت مكتسبات الأنوار عن وجهتها الحقيقية، تيارات من بين مسمياتها العلموية والفردانية والدعوة إلى شطب الراديكالي للمقدس والقول بفقدان المعنى والنسبية المعممة"

روح الأنوار مساهمة فكرية نقدية لإساءة استعمال تلك المفاهيم العقلانية، وموقف الانسان نحو العقلانية بعد مضي ثورة التنوير. الأنور -يقصد بها العقلانية- مشروع قائم عبر الأزمان، والثقافات، ولا تقتصر على عقيدة بل انها تتجاوز العقائد وتقام بها أو معها أو جانبها أو بغض النظر عنها حسب الفرد وبيئته وظروفها.

Quando falamos de Iluminismo, imaginamo-nos aos Enciclopedistas (e Kant) e sua sede insaciável por situar ao mundo, por primeira vez na história, no caminho da racionalidade. Lembramos logo de Voltaire e sua crítica à religião, a Diderot e a sede por controlar da natureza, a Kant e sua lógica radical etc. Entretanto, Todorov, em O espírito das Luzes, explica que o movimento das Luzes não foi tão heterogêneo assim.

الكتاب جميل بحد ذاته، يمازج بين قيم عصر التنوير وما حل بها في عصرنا الآن ويناقش علاقتنا بها، أو ربما "علاقة الغرب وأوروبا بها" بشكل أدق. لولا الترجمة البائسة التافهة، الركيكة والمليئة بالأخطاء الإملائية والترقيمية، لكان الكتاب أفضل بكثير مما هو عليه الآن! أتمنى أن يترجمه مترجم آخر أكثر تمكنا، وأن تدقق في الترجمة وجودتها أكثر دار النشر مستقبلا.

يصف تودوروف الأنوار في آخر هذا الكتاب بأنها لم تعد اتجاهًا فكريًا، وإنما موقفًا من العالم، وأرى بأنه قد تحدث عنها في مجمل الكتاب بوصفها كذلك.

Not a perfect book - Todorov sets up easily-dismissed strawman versions of the internet's potential (and actual) impact on human co-operation and the space program's relevance to our fate as a species. There's also a sense that his vision of Enlightenment thinking is so subtle as to be almost nebulous - it's not the radical desacralisation and scientism of Dawkins et. al., nor the radical relativism of post-modernism, just as much as it isn't the pursuit of theocracy or autocracy, but I think is ...more

This book is a relatively easy reading and a very good defense of the enlightenment idea(s). According to Todorov, enlightenment is not a comprehensive or a single project as it is often proclaimed to be. Enlightenment is rationalist and empiricist, emphasizing universality and particularity, it is a more open debate rather than an achieved consensus. In other words, it is an attack on how the society was structured, and that religious institutions or any other object aren't holistic, what is ho ...more

Despite being little over one-hundred-and-fifty pages in length, In Defence of the Enlightenment offers a surprisingly wide-ranging critique of the Enlightenment and, in Tzvetan Todorov's view, what it means for us as citizens of the modern world. Todorov examines the writings of the main Enlightenment thinkers and links them to the present day, arguing throughout that these ideas remain as relevant now as they were in the eighteenth century.

Coming as it did in the wake of the global financial c

A very enjoyable, and very quotable short book. I dont remember being taught about the enlightenment in school (to be honest i wasnt paying much attention) but what the enlightenment gave us in terms of critical thought and the freedom to express those thoughts should be a key part of our education.

The importance of a plurality of ideas was something i hadn't considered before - free thinking can only really exist when people are thinking different things. I'm probably not doing the book justic

Zanimljivo djelo, u vezi čijeg bih hrv. izdanja htio samo napomenuti da je zanimljivo na kakav način još više dovodi do izražaja duh kojim je i sam autor bio nadahnut, tj. isticanje svega i svačega kao čimbenika koji su pogodovali tome da se prosvjetiteljstvo razvije baš na tlu zapadne Europe, osim, dakako, kršćanstva. Ono je tu samo onako usput dalo doprinos, svojim podjelama više negoli svojom biti, jer tobože je tek prosvjetiteljstvo unijelo u svijet ideju o jednakom dostojanstvu svih ljudi.

Tre stelle per l'impegno nel difendere (senza tacerne le ombre) una tradizione, quella dell'Illuminismo, oggi assediata da integralismi, fanatismi, intolleranze, identitarismi e irrazionalismi emotivi, a destra come a sinistra dello spettro politico.
Particolarmente benvenute e apprezzate la difesa della libertà di parola e l'esigenza che la verità storica sia stabilita dal confronto tra i cittadini e non da parlamenti e tribunali (vedi il dibattito/polemica sulle leggi contro i negazionismi, ecc

Excelente análisis de una forma de ver el mundo y su conexión con el presente. Todorov escribe fácil, permite que cualquier persona pueda leer y entender el libro. Lo que criticaría es que es demasiado laudatorio, demasiado propagandístico; faltó una visión crítica del movimiento.

يعتبر مؤرخ الأفكار تزفيتان تودوروف من أهم المدافعين عن "الأنوار" و"الحداثة" في وقت رواج رؤى وأفكار مناقضة ومناوئة للحداثة.
في هذا الكتاب "روح الأنوار" يحدد تودوروف رؤيته للأنوار، ويقدم دفاعه عن قيمه والتي يلخصها في الاستقلالية واللا ئيكية ومعرفة الحقيقة والبشرية والكونية.

A very short, dense, yet highly readable book that is well worth picking up. As the title implies, this is not an in-depth exposition or analysis of enlightenment philosophy. Rather it is a polemic - an argument for the importance of enlightenment ideas in the world today. Along the way Todorov provides many original, perhaps provocative and always thought provoking insights into what enlightenment philosophy really means, along with a litany of criticisms of the enlightenment to which he provid ...more
Doug Newdick
This is a good analysis and summary of the values of the enlightenment and its enduring influence today. Tzvetan Todorov argues passionately that these central values and concerns are still relevant, still valuable and still worth defending both against anti-enlightenment forces and those who have distorted the key messages of the enlightenment. Well worth reading if you want to understand one of the most important aspects of Western intellectual history.

An interesting read, relating the ideas of the enlightenment to modern day life. Even the points I disagree with are eloquently put forward and understandable, so it isn't a pain even if you have conflicting views. (Not that such a thing should be a reason not to read, but for some it is, so anyway.) Only one chapter was really a slog, and it's very small, I read it in one sitting.

In Bulgarian Цветан Тодоров. Todorov was a Franco-Bulgarian historian, philosopher and literary theoretician. Among his most influential works is his theory on the fantastic, the uncanny and marvellous.
