A French tragedy scenes of civil war, summer 1944 by Tzvetan Todorov( )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Allied troops landed in Normandy in 1944, members of the local French Resistance in the small town of Saint-Amand-Montrond embarked on an ill-fated attempt to liberate their town. Based on noble but politically questionable motives, and failing to inspire broader support, the incident quickly devolved from confrontation to a stand-off and ultimately to a tragedy. Resistance forces took and subsequently executed hostages; their opponents, the milice - collaborationist French police - and German soldiers rounded up 70 Jewish adults and children in retaliation and put many to a horrible death. Eminent literary and cultural critic Tzvetan Todorov examines the episode as history but also as a moral paradigm

Imperfect garden : the legacy of humanism by Tzvetan Todorov( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imperfect Garden is both an approachable intellectual history and a bracing treatise on how we should understand and experience our lives. In it, one of Europe's most prominent intellectuals explores the foundations, limits, and possibilities of humanist thinking. Through his critical but sympathetic excavation of humanism, Tzvetan Todorov seeks an answer to modernity's fundamental challenge: how to maintain our hard-won liberty without paying too dearly in social ties, common values, and a coherent and responsible sense of self." "Placing the history of ideas at the service of a quest for moral and political wisdom, Todorov's compelling and no doubt controversial rethinking of humanist ideas testifies to the enduring capacity of those ideas to meditate on - and, if we are fortunate, cultivate - the imperfect garden in which we live."--Jacket
Theories of the symbol by Tzvetan Todorov( Book )

24 editions published between 1977 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on theories of verbal symbolism, Tzvetan Todorov here presents a history of semiotics. From an account of the semiotic doctrines embodied in the works of classical rhetoric to an exploration of representative modern concepts of the symbol found in ethnology, psychoanalysis, linguistics, and poetics, Todorov examines the rich tradition of sign theory. In the course of his discussion Todorov treats the works of such writers as Aristotle, Cicero, Quintilian, Augustine, Condillac, Lessing, Diderot, Goethe, Novalis, the Schlegel brothers, Levy-Bruhl, Freud, Saussure, and Jakobson. -- Publisher description
The fear of barbarians beyond the clash of civilizations by Tzvetan Todorov( Book )

20 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between Western democracies and Islam, rarely entirely comfortable, has in recent years become increasingly tense. A growing immigrant population and worries about cultural and political assimilation--exacerbated by terrorist attacks in the United States, Europe, and around the world--have provoked reams of commentary from all parts of the political spectrum, a frustrating majority of it hyperbolic or even hysterical. In The Fear of Barbarians, Tzvetan Todorov offers a corrective: an analysis of the problem, rooted in Enlightenment values yet open to the claims of cultural difference. Drawing on history, anthropology, and politics, and bringing to bear examples ranging from the murder of Theo van Gogh to the French ban on headscarves, Todorov argues that the West must overcome its fear of Islam if it is to avoid betraying the values it claims to protect. True freedom, Todorov explains, requires us to strike a delicate balance between protecting and imposing cultural values, acknowledging the primacy of the law, and yet strenuously protecting minority views that do not interfere with its aims. --From publisher's description
Introduction à la littérature fantastique by Tzvetan Todorov( Book )

41 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quoique très controversé, cet ouvrage demeure une tentative rigoureuse de catégorisation dont l'auteur ne cache pas les postulats nécessaires. Faisant consister le fantastique comme une hésitation entre la foi absolue et l'incrédulité totale, il le condamne à une existence éphémère entre le merveilleux et l'étrange. Ce livre, malgré ses mérites, demeure un échec honorable, largement discuté dans les ouvrages parus sur le sujet après 1971, date de la publication originale

44 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tzvetan Todorov tente de décrire quelques théories du symbole - c'est-à-dire différentes façons de saisir des faits symboliques. Le premier chapitre envisage la naissance de la sémiotique dans l'oeuvre de saint Augustin. Les quatre suivants décrivent ce que Todorov apelle le "classisisme" de la sémiotique, c'est-à-dire la rhétorique (de l'Antiquité au XIXe) et l'esthétique (18e siècle). Le sixième chapitre s'attache à décrire le romantisme allemand: c'est la partie la plus substantielle du livre. Todorov termine par des auteurs postérieurs à la crise romantique: Freud, Saussure, Jakobson - Important. Niveau élevé. Index des noms propres
