Praise for 'Being in Time' - 'another hole in the dyke keeping free thought out'
May 21, 2017
Eric Walberg reviews Atzmon's Being In Time: A Post Political Manifesto:
"Atzmon is a latterday Pascal, with his startling, spiritual pensees, 'beyond left and right', unafraid to tackle unpleasant truths. He explores the growth of identity politics and the reaction to it that produced Trump. Trump is an illusion too, and Atzmon provides a rudder to navigate the malaise that is gripping the West, with a clown now at the helm. The only way out of our intellectual deadend is to see through the illusions to what really shapes us and the world around us. Jewish thought and politics are at the heart of this, and Atzmon is one of the few thinkers with the courage to defy the identitarian thinking that forbids the very mention of what is most central to today's world. Being in Time is another hole in the dyke keeping free thought out."
