Na companhia dos livros. O blog da Quetzal Editores.
Brevemente, a Quetzal publicará As Vantagens do Pessimismo, do filósofo Roger Scruton. O livro está quase pronto. A capa é esta:
“Arguably the greatest political philosopher of his era, Scruton’s misfortune is to have lived during a time when, despite the evident failures of Communism, the masses have embraced the utopian vision like never before. (…)
This is an immensely important and enlightening work for an age of wilful delusion.”
Ed West, Catholic Herald, 30.07.2010
“Scruton does not argue in favour of comprehensive pessimism. His central thesis holds that unscrupulous optimism leads to faulty decision-making and that all our decisions should be leavened with an occasional dose of pessimism.”
Pat Ahern, Irish Examiner, 24.07.2010
“(…) his book argues that a measure of judicious pessimism is essential to restoring balance and wisdom in human affairs, and to tempering unrealistic hopes that might ruin us.”
George Walden, New Statesman, 05.07.2010
“Scruton’s study seeks to defend «the image of human imperfection» against those utopian and optimistic creeds that dream of a future without conflict or compromise.”
Boyd Tonkin, The Independent, 04.06.2010
