Feuer der Freiheit: Die Rettung der Philosophie in finsteren Zeiten: 1933-1943

Wolfram Eilenberger

Publisher: Klett-Cotta


The years 1933 to 1943 mark the blackest chapter in the history of modern Europe. In the face of catastrophe, four female philosophers, Simone de Beauvoir, Simone Weil, Ayn Rand and Hannah Arendt, developed their visionary ideas: on the relationship between the individual and society, man and woman, sex and gender, freedom and totalitarianism, God and man. Their adventurous path led them from Stalin’s Leningrad to Hollywood, from Hitler’s Berlin and occupied Paris to New York; but above all to revolutionary ideas and new ways of thinking without which our present, and future, would not be the same.
