About the book:

These profiles show how the classic problem of the relation between philosophy and politics evolved in the 20th century into the modern challenge of intellectual responsibility in an age of barbarism and totalitarianism. The author suggests that although the threat of tyranny seems to have receded, its possible allure continues to challenge independent inquiry. Included are profiles of Martin Heidegger, Carl Schmitt, Walter Benjamin, Alexandre Kojeve, Michel Foucault, and Jacques Derrida.
