Democratic Individuality

Liberty, Individuality, and Democracy in Jorge Luis Borges (Politics, Literature, & Film)

Liberty, Individuality, and Democracy in Jorge Luis Borges (Politics, Literature, & Film) by Alejandra M. Salinas
English | October 26th, 2016 | ASIN: B01MEBRPDN, ISBN: 1498514561 | 153 Pages | EPUB | 0.38 MB

This book seeks to fill a double lacuna in Borges scholarship. For one, this scholarship has been largely developed through the lens of literary and cultural studies, and not by political theorists who bring a distinct disciplinary perspective into the reading of literary works. Secondly, mainstream interpreters have overlooked or have not analyzed enough Borges’s political sympathies.

English | June 20, 2011 | ISBN: 1906924392 | 166 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Recent acts of terrorism and the pro-democracy unrest in the Middle East remind us how important it is to understand the relationship between violence, peace and democracy.
