It is sometimes thought that the renowned essayist Isaiah Berlin (1909-1997) was incapable of writing a big book. But in fact he developed some of his most important essays--including "Two Concepts of Liberty" and "Historical Inevitability"--from a book-length manuscript that he intended to publish but later set aside.

Avvertenze per il lettore generalista

Non ho n�� le conoscenze, n�� la presunzione per scrivere un commento al libro di Berlin che possa risultare utile a qualcuno.
Quindi, mi limito a qualche avvertenza ad altri lettori generalisti come il sottoscritto.

Il libro si compone di quattro saggi tra loro collegati, originariamente scritti come lezioni universitarie.
Affrontarli senza una base di studi di filosofia, anche solo a livello liceale, mi pare sinceramente arduo.
Si tenga conto che il sottoscri

Berlin è stato uno dei profeti della cultura liberale del ventesimo secolo, ma anche uno scrittore asistematico come pochi. Questo libro può essere considerato la sua opera più vasta, alla quale però l’autore non ha mai dato una veste definitiva: la mancata levigatura viene scontata da una parte con iterazioni o ripetizioni, dall’altra con qualche brusco stacco, per non parlare del paio di cartelle che il curatore non è più riuscito a recuperare. Ciò non toglie che il libro – il cui spunto fu un ...more

An excellent history of philosophy from the great liberal thinker. Much food for thought. I am very much interested in exploring more of Berlin's thought.

Sir Isaiah Berlin was a philosopher and historian of ideas, regarded as one of the leading liberal thinkers of the twentieth century. He excelled as an essayist, lecturer and conversationalist; and as a brilliant speaker who delivered, rapidly and spontaneously, richly allusive and coherently structured material, whether for a lecture series at Oxford University or as a broadcaster on the BBC Thir ...more
