L’idée de Dieu a joué un tel rôle dans les destinées humaines, elle a pénétré si profondément les mœurs, le langage
et jusqu’à l’hérédité des peuples, que celui qui en est aujourd’hui dépourvu, celui qui n’a pas reçu cette idée
en héritage et n’a pu l’acquérir par éducation, doit, me semble-t-il, être considéré comme un monstre par l. a. majorité
des hommes. Et s’il arrive que le monstre soit doué de sens ethical (l’hérédité est si capricieuse dans l. a. génération
sexuelle qui est l. a. nôtre !), s’il arrive que l’athée soit vertueux, son cas sera en même temps tératologique et
paradoxal. Beaucoup de nos congénères affirment en effet qu’ils sont honnêtes, parce qu’ils craignent Dieu ; ils ne
peuvent concevoir par conséquent qu’un athée ne soit pas vicieux et criminel, comme ils seraient eux-mêmes sans leur
foi. Peut-être sont-ils trop modestes ; peut-être ont-ils en eux des raisons d’être bons et aimables, indépendamment
de toute croyance religieuse ; mais enfin, il y a des hommes qui sont méchants, cela est certain...

By Tzvetan Todorov
The courting among Western democracies and Islam, not often solely cozy, has in recent times develop into more and more stressful. A becoming immigrant inhabitants and concerns approximately cultural and political assimilation—exacerbated by way of terrorist assaults within the United States, Europe, and round the world—have provoked reams of remark from all components of the political spectrum, a difficult majority of it hyperbolic or perhaps hysterical.
In The worry of Barbarians, the distinguished highbrow Tzvetan Todorov deals a corrective: a reasoned and infrequently hugely own research of the matter, rooted in Enlightenment values but open to the claims of cultural distinction. Drawing on heritage, anthropology, and politics, and bringing to endure examples starting from the homicide of Theo van Gogh to the French ban on headscarves, Todorov argues that the West needs to triumph over its worry of Islam whether it is to prevent betraying the values it claims to guard. actual freedom, Todorov explains, calls for us to strike a fragile stability among holding and enforcing cultural values, acknowledging the primacy of the legislation, and but strenuously maintaining minority perspectives that don't intervene with its goals. including strength to Todorov's arguments is his personal event as a local of communist Bulgaria: his admiration of French civic identity—and Western freedom—is energetic yet non-nativist, an inclusive imaginative and prescient whose very flexibility is its center strength.
The checklist of a penetrating brain grappling with a classy, multifaceted challenge, The worry of Barbarians is a strong, vital book—a name, to not fingers, yet to thought.
