The Crooked Timber of Humanity
Isaiah Berlin was one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century.
Isaiah Berlin was one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. In The Crooked Timber of Humanity he exposes the links between the ideas of the past and the social and political cataclysms of our own time: Between the Platonic belief in absolute truth and the lure of authoritarianism; between the eighteenth-century reactionary ideologue Joseph de Maistre and 20th-century fascism; between romanticism and the militant nationalism.
