To be done once and for all with the prevailing cynicism and pessimism, become enchanted once more with universal values.
It’s a topic that torments us: our world is becoming too evil and too fast; injustice and violence have total reign.

It’s a topic that torments us: our world is becoming too evil and too fast; injustice and violence have total reign. In our societies with no future and prey to cynicism, the only thing that counts is the most immediate reality. But history is what men do with it; no fate, whether natural, surpernatural, or divine, necessarily leads to the worst possibility, and nothing forbids us from thinking about it. A sociological essay that takes from immediate intellectual history as well. Going back to the ideas of French and international thinkers of the last twenty years, Michel Wieviorka draws up a rich panorama of contemporary thought. A brilliant and invigorating demonstration, fit to reenergize us in these difficult times.
