9780745647111: The Heritage of Our Times

Heritage of Our Times is a brilliant examination of modern culture and its legacy by one of the most important and deeply influential thinkers of the 20th century. Bloch argues that the key elements of a genuine cultural tradition are not just to be found in the conveniently closed and neatly labeled ages of the past, but also in the open and experimental cultural process of our time.

One of the most compelling aspects of this work is a contemporary analysis of the rise of Nazism. It probes its bogus roots in German history and mythology at the very moment when the ideologies of Blood and Soil and the Blond Beast were actually taking hold of the German people.

The breadth and depth of Bloch's vision, together with the rich diversity of his interest, ensure this work a place as one of the key books of the 20th century.

From the Inside Flap:

"Although it has neither the prophetic energy of Spirit of Utopia nor the serene immensity of The Principle of Hope, Heritage of Our Times is in many ways Ernst Bloch's richest and most satisfying book, and an excellent place for the newcomer to begin. The implacable effort to understand history and the Nazi triumph gives weight and density to a characteristic mixture of experience, impression, aesthetic reflection, philosophical statement, and Utopian and political pronouncement. The crucial concept developed in this volume—'non-contemporaneity' or the so-called 'synchronicity of the non-synchronous'—has become an indispensable intellectual instrument of grasping modernity."—Fredric R. Jameson, Duke University

"Brilliant in its insights, illuminating of complex cultural conflicts . . . Heritage of Our Times explores the question of how 'hope' for the future can be justified in the face of violent dislocations, social, cultural, and political to which modernizing societies are inevitably subjected."—Hayden White, University of California, Santa Cruz

About the Author:

Ernst Bloch (1885-1977) left Germany for Switzerland in 1917 because of his pacifist beliefs. In 1933 he left again, returning to Germany in 1949 to assume the chair in philosophy at the University of Leipzig. After the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961, he moved to the University of Tübingen, where he was Professor of Philosophy until his death. His more than twenty books include The Principle of Hope and Natural Law and Human Dignity. Neville Plaice and Stephen Plaice translated (with Paul Knight) Ernst Bloch's The Principle of Hope.
