Identity and Violence: The Illusion of Destiny

Norton, pp. Norton, , pp. Each is a measured attack on the cultural separatism prevalent in many academic and policy circles. According to the cultural separatism thesis, cultures or nations are morally central groups in the world; membership in such groups is both ethically significant and explanatorily powerful; and the borders of cultural and national groups must be preserved against outside influence. This thesis is rejected by both Appiah and Sen, in subtly different ways.

Similar experiences can produce very different philosophies. Witnessing the Russian revolution as a child in Petrograd, Isaiah Berlin saw a crowd dragging off a struggling man, pale and terrified, to be killed. He used to say that the episode gave him a life-long horror of violence, and it undoubtedly bred in him a suspicion of theories that suggested a radiant future could be realised by the use of force. The experience did not make him a pacifist - he served as a government official in the second world war - nor did it lead him to condemn all revolutions. What it did was implant in him a deep sense of the fragility of freedom.

Book review 'Identity and Violence: the illusion of destiny'

Don't have an account? This chapter is an attempt to develop Sen's discussion of how illusions about identity contribute to violent conflict. The importance of nationality and religion in people's sense of their identity is linked to deep psychological needs. The role of identity in violence is linked to group narratives, especially about humiliation and defeat. A case is made for an Enlightenment idea of international order as the way to escape from these cycles of violence.

Identity and Violence

Profound and humane, Amartya Sen's Identity and Violence: The Illusion of Destiny examines some of the most explosive problems of our time and shows how we can move towards peace as firmly as we have spiralled towards war.

Amartya Sen

Тем не менее информация на экране казалась невероятной: NDAKOTA ETDOSHISHA. EDU - ЕТ? - спросила Сьюзан. У нее кружилась голова.  - Энсей Танкадо и есть Северная Дакота. Это было непостижимо.

ГЛАВА 24 Дэвид Беккер стоял в телефонной будке на противоположной стороне улицы, прямо напротив городской больницы, откуда его только что выставили за причинение беспокойства пациенту под номером 104, месье Клушару. Все внезапно осложнилось, пошло совсем не так, как он рассчитывал. Мелкая любезность, которую он оказал Стратмору, забрав личные вещи Танкадо, вылилась в поиски таинственного кольца, как в известной игре, где нужно находить спрятанные предметы. Дэвид только что позвонил Стратмору и рассказал о немецком туристе. Новость не обрадовала коммандера. Выслушав подробности, он долго молчал.

Чем бы они ни занимались - посещали Смитсоновский институт, совершали велосипедную прогулку или готовили спагетти у нее на кухне, - Дэвид всегда вникал во все детали. Сьюзан отвечала на те вопросы, на которые могла ответить, и постепенно у Дэвида сложилось общее представление об Агентстве национальной безопасности - за исключением, разумеется, секретных сторон деятельности этого учреждения. Основанное президентом Трумэном в 12 часов 01 минуту 4 ноября 1952 года, АНБ на протяжении почти пятидесяти лет оставалось самым засекреченным разведывательным ведомством во всем мире. Семистраничная доктрина сжато излагала программу его работы: защищать системы связи американского правительства и перехватывать сообщения зарубежных государств.

В данный момент эта чертова программа надежно зашифрована и абсолютно безопасна. Но как только шифр будет взломан… - Коммандер, а не лучше ли будет… - Мне нужен ключ! - отрезал. Сьюзан должна была признать, что, услышав о Цифровой крепости, она как ученый испытала определенный интерес, желание установить, как Танкадо удалось создать такую программу.

Он не хотел, чтобы это зашло так далеко, - говорила она .
